My 3 year old has been asking for carrot soup. Interesting! Years ago Dave and I used to make a carrot and lime soup. I can’t remember why or where we got that idea but it was golden to dig that recipe out of our memory banks today. It is delicious!
1 kg carrots
1 garlic clove
1 inch ginger
3 cups water or veg stock
Pretty simple ingredients!
Peel the carrots, remove the ends, and place them in a baking dish. Lightly oil them, dust them with salt and pepper, and squeeze the juice of 2 limes over them before roasting them in the oven at 200 deg C until browning.
Saute the garlic and ginger , add in the roasted carrots and 3 cups hot water. Simmer for 10 minutes before pouring soup into a blender.
Blend REALLY well for a smooth consistency.
