Colour It Autumn

I don't really have a recipe for this soup it's a kinda throw together using what I have on hand. It is packed full of all that orange stuff with lots of vitamins though…..

I had a bag of those mini carrots you use on party trays. Don't want to waste those…..

Threw them into a pot and added some water to cover…

Brought it to a boil and turned the heat down…let it simmer until the carrots were all soft…..Then added some chicken soup base (bouillon in French) to the water….

Had some leftover mashed potatoes and squash…why not add that too….

Add a little bit of garlic, a dash of ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon and a little bit of curry powder, now were talkin'….

Added a little bit of Orange juice and apple juice for a touch of sweetness…..

Let it simmer for a bit…..until it's all nicely blended and hot…

Got out the hand blender and whizzed it all up until it's nicely pureed….

Works for me…

Bon Appetit

A nice hot bowl of carrot soup on a cool Autumn day…..mmmmmgood

Sounds like a pretty interesting soup. I'll have to give it shot myself.

I love any kind of vegetable soups! This is so colorful in the green bowl - makes it look like the carrot stem! Thanks for sharing the recipe, too, AB!
