Spicy Carrot Soup!  This is a Carrot Soup with a Kick!  Take a staple vegetable such as carrots and turn them into a fabulous soup just by using a few ingredients, including curry and cayenne to turn up the heat and spice up the flavor.  So yummy, you’ll want to make this one over and over again!

A quick and easy recipe for this spicy carrot soup you can whip up anytime, especially if you probably have them on hand. You may even think that Carrot Soup is bland and boring, until you try this version.

We enjoy making this Spicy Carrot Soup with a Kick, especially when the cool weather starts.

It’s loaded with antioxidants, minerals and Vitamin A.  It makes the perfect soup simply because it’s low in calories, low in fat and low in sodium and is satisfying all at the same time!

Carrot Soup with a Kick is an excellent choice for eating a bowl of health!

One of the key ingredient in this carrot soup is the curry powder.  It adds a nice punch to the flavor.

Then I decided to add a dollop of sour cream on top (or you can add Greek yogurt,) right before it’s served.  This gave a wonderful soothing flavor and a favorable  hot and cold sensation with your first spoonful.

So Yummy – it’s even addicting!

Soups always make a perfect starter for any meal, especially on those hectic busy weekdays.  If you have carrots in your fridge, we hope this will inspire you to give it a try!

Enjoy!

Thanks for Pinning!

    This soup really appeals to me for its gorgeous fall color, and earthy-sweet flavors. I had forgotten how much I enjoy it! Thanks for the reminder!

    Hi Suzanne, baby carrots are just fine and you could probably use the butternut or even sweet potatoes. I bet its just as good! I will have to try them with this recipe too!

    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 🙂 xoxo, Jackie
