I eat a lot of carrots. They are very good for you and they are so tasty. I like them just steamed, or sautéed in butter, or in any way.
EASY CREAM OF CARROT SOUP
I love this soup. It is very easy to make and wonderfully rich.
2 carrots, peeled and cubed
About 1 cup chicken stock (make your own or buy organic)
Milk to taste
Salt & Pepper to taste
Nutmeg to taste
Boil carrots in stock until tender. If you have to add a little more stock or water before they are tender, do so. Strain carrots but save the stock.
(Please be careful with the next step.If you are not used to blending hot foods, a lot of blenders will splash out hot contents. I drain the carrots and place in the blender then slowly add the stock as I need it.)
Place in blender and blend until very smooth adding the stock as you need it. Place back in the pot, add the rest of the stock and add milk to taste. Some people like it very thick, others not so. Sprinkle with nutmeg to taste.
When my daughter was little, I made soup out of any vegetable she wouldn't eat. If I presented it to her in soup form, she ate it. I used this recipe to make cream of anything: broccoli, squash, peas, watercress (my favorite). Now I make these soups with lactose-free milk and enjoy them just as much.
