Easy Carrot Soup – Only 5 Ingredients!

Easy Carrot Soup – Only 5 Ingredients!

We already know I am a soup fan, right? Well, my new favourite soup is this easy carrot soup that my friend Melissa introduced me to. It only has 5 ingredients and is super easy to make.

Who knew that a soup with so few ingredients could be THIS good. Today I paired it with my garlic and cheese beer bread for a hearty lunch with friends.

Since this recipe for easy carrot soup is so easy and all…make sure to use the best ingredients you can. I am NOT a believer in eating all things organic but I have found that organic carrots just taste better. You won’t regret it because the flavour is so worth it.

Easy Carrot Soup

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 2 pounds carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • salt and pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

In a large stock pot, heat olive oil and add onions. Stir and cook until onions begin to soften and caramelize. Approximately 7-10 minutes.

Add chicken broth and heat through. Use a blender or immersion blender (preferred) to blend soup until smooth. 

Salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with cream, Boursin cheese or Sriracha (or a combo of the three) or eat as is. Enjoy!

See? The hardest part of this soup is peeling and chopping the onions and carrots, which isn’t hard at all!

As you cook the carrots, the natural sweetness shines through. The soup is subtley sweet but you can easily balance that with added salt or cheese if it isn’t your thing.

I love how you can add all kinds of different toppings to make the soup your own. My favourites are a swirl of cream, Boursin, sriracha and leftover corn on the cob kernels (or some combination of all of these). 

Dewey can’t stand sweet soup but loved this one topped with boursin and sriracha.

One more thing to note, this easy carrot soup freezes beautifully since it doesn’t contain dairy. Ladle it into ziplock bags and freeze flat for easily stackable and thawable soup for later.
