I've been digging simple soups and dishes recently for a variety of reasons. They are usually inexpensive. They typically mix together quickly and require little effort. They don't make for much cleanup either. And simple foods can be super flavorful -- just take this carrot soup, for example.
5 core ingredients = dynamite.
ROASTED CARROT SOUP with WHITE MISO
Vegan. Makes 4-6 servings.
What you'll need . . .
- 8-9 large carrots, scrubbed + chopped
- 1 large white onion, chopped
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- salt + pepper
- 32 ounces vegetable stock
- 1/4 cup white miso
Method . . .
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Chop your carrots and onions and place on a rimmed baking sheet.
- Drizzle with olive oil and spindle with salt and pepper. Then roast for 20 minutes, toss, and roast another 20-30 minutes -- until browned and soft.
- Place roasted veggies in a blender along with the veggie stock and miso. Pulse until well incorporated (but I left mine a bit chunky).
- Return to stove and heat until carrots have fully softened, if necessary/desired. Season more with salt and pepper to taste.
I added the miso in this recipe for flavor, as you guys taught me (via the Sweet Potato + Broccoli Miso Soup) the nutritional benefits can be lost with over-cooking. So, if you're into this recipe for the healthy miso stuff, you may wish to add it once the soup has cooled a bit. And actually, I tried the soup cold, and it's quite good that way.
You may also remember our Carrot Soup with a Kick recipe. It's one of my favorites and DEFINITELY similar to this one, but isn't roasted + has lots of spices at play. However you eat 'em, carrots are a great food to add to your diet.

Another tasty carrot recipe headed your way this week! It's sort of like these healthy Carrot Brownie Bites meet these Red Velvet Black Bean Brownies. And they have a protein-rich, vegan baby.
Hope you all great a great weekend! Thanks again for all your help with our $550 kitchen refresh. Our open house went well -- but still no offers. We'll see what happens this week, but we're glad we did it now versus waiting much longer.
