Health Kick – Carrot and Potato Soup

Its worth remembering that I’m married to a vegetarian (who might eat the odd prawn every now and then). Her favourite culinary creation is soup, primarily because we otherwise would live off a diet of chocolate puddings and pies.

Her carrot and potato soup is extremely good. I am no good at soup because I cannot stop adding things to it while I’m making it. For perfect carrot and potato soup you will need:

  • One large potato, peeled
  • Four or five carrots, peeled
  • One large onion, finely chopped
  • Butter
  • Vegetable stock

Fry the onion in butter then add the veg and continue to cook. Add the stock, season and boil until soft.

Now transfer to a jug and whizz until you get a nice thick puree soup!

Avoid dropping the wedding ring into the creation

Now serve. If you are sensible you will eat this with just a grind of pepper. If you are me you will have to include bread and cheese.

  1. How easy and yummy is this! I love making soups for this exact reason – so easy to make and yet so delicious that it seems like you must have spent ages making it.

    I’d definitely be adding the bread but possibly not the cheese, only because I would have eaten all that cheese on the way to the table …
