How to make our Spicy Carrot Soup?

This recipe is a simple mixture of a few vegetables, along with carrots, and spices, simmered with water and broth. Then it is blended into a creamy mixture.

What makes this Carrot Soup So Flavorful?

  • One of the key ingredients in this carrot soup is curry powder.  It adds a nice punch of flavor and gives the soup a little more spice.
  • Just before serving, I decided to add a dollop of sour cream on top, or you can add Greek yogurt if you prefer.  This gave a wonderful, soothing flavor and a favorable hot and cold sensation with your first spoonful.
  • So Yummy – it’s even addicting!

  1. Hi girls! I love carrot soup and I don't think it's boring at all. It actually has amazing flavor and looks so pretty as well. I love the addition of adding curry to the soup. I might have to try that next time. It's supposed to cool off this weekend, making it the perfect soup making weekend πŸ™‚ xoxo, Jackie

  2. I tried this recipe of yours and it turned out really delicious! My family loved it so much I will be making it often. Thanks for your recipes, they are very inspiring.
