Creamy Carrot Soup


Hello. I am super excited to share a great soup with you today, its a homemade carrot soup. This soup was on my list, as a way to use a nice amount of our garden carrots. Picture above, is of my son & I. We had a community garden over this summer and finally harvested it all last month. We pulled tons of Organic GMO free carrots, these guys were huge and sweet & beautiful. We pulled bundles & bundles, so I had to find a way to use a majority of them. I found this recipe HERE on Pinterest and it was the BEST carrot soup I have ever had! Do yourself a favor and buy Organic carrots or use hem fresh from your garden like we did and it makes extra special. 

We weighed out our carrots, we had some really beefy ones so didnt require a ton.

Creamy Organic Carrot Soup

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 pounds peeled carrots, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 large onion, thinly sliced {I left this out, can't have onion}
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 sprig of fresh thyme {straight from my garden}
1 sprig of fresh rosemary
32 ounces chicken broth
2 strips precooked bacon {you gotta do this}
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce

1. Place oil in large pot over medium heat. Add carrots, onions, garlic, thyme and rosemary. Cook for 15 minutes, until carrots are fork tender. Remove herb sprigs and transfer carrots and vegetables to blender. Add chicken broth and continue to puree. Transfer to large saucepan over medium heat and add bacon strips. Season with salt, pepper and hot sauce. Simmer until ready to serve.
Makes 6 servings

We had leftovers and I froze several bags!
