If you haven’t had carrot soup before, this is really good. I’m not a huge carrot eater but went back for seconds with this soup! It is made with Cosmic Purple carrots and Atomic Red carrots (hence the name) but can be made with any other variety of carrot as well.
Cosmic Atomic Carrot Soup
1 large onion
½ lb. Russet potatoes
½ stick butter
1½-2 lbs fresh carrots, cleaned and sliced
6-8 cups veggie or chicken broth
1 cup cream (or half and half)
salt/pepper to taste
honey (to taste) – tablespoon+
Saute onions in butter on medium heat in a SOUP POT till tender. That way you can just add the other ingredients without using more pots. Add carrots, potatoes and broth and cook till they are fork tender. Pour into a blender and blend till smooth. You will have to do it in batches. You could use a ‘wand’ but I find the blender purees it better and it should be silky smooth. Pour it back into the soup pot. Add honey to taste to just bring out the sweetness of the carrots and stir in well. Taste. Add more honey if needed. Stir in cream. Reheat till warm but do not boil. Delicious!
