You are absolutely gonna love this carrot soup! So thick and delicious—my dad loves it.
With a Splash of Orange Juice!
Rather than risk razing my knuckles on the grater to add a little orange rind for flavoring, I add a splash of OJ straight from the bottle! :-) Shhhh! Keep it a secret...
Carrot soup is healthy and easy to make. The key to a good soup is using the right type of carrots. When cooking with fresh carrots, look for carrots that are bright orange and have a smooth, firm texture. Avoid carrots that are limp or have brown spots.
Here are a few tips on how to choose the best carrots for your soup:
Making a delicious and healthy soup is easy if you use the right ingredients. Be sure to choose the best carrots for your carrot soup recipe and enjoy!
There are many different types of carrots. The most common type is the orange carrot, but there are also white, yellow, and purple carrots. Each type of carrot has its own unique flavor and nutritional value. When choosing carrots for your soup, be sure to select the type that best suits your taste.
Orange carrots are the most popular type of carrot. They are also the sweetest and most nutritious. Orange carrots are a good source of beta-carotene, which is converted into vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A is important for vision, immunity, and cell growth.
White carrots are less sweet than orange carrots and have a slightly bitter taste. They are a good source of fiber and vitamins C and K.
Yellow carrots are similar to white carrots in terms of taste and nutrition. They are slightly sweeter than white carrots and are a good source of vitamin A, potassium, and beta-carotene.
Purple carrots are the least sweet type of carrot. They have a nutty flavor and are a good source of antioxidants. Purple carrots are also a good source of vitamins A, C, and K.
You should be able to 'detect' the orange juice, but not be overwhelmed by it.
You can also use a “wand/stick” blender, but make sure that you’re not using a non-stick pan or your “best pan” at this
stage, otherwise the hand-held stick blender head may scratch it.
*IF you need to add salt, do so, BUT be careful NOT to over-salt as the bouillon has salt in it.
ENJOY this fantastic good-to-the-last-drop soup—not only for the sheer taste of it, but the goodness of the beta carotene it contains too! It's my dad's FAVORITE soup I make!
