6 carrots 1 onion soup… close enough

Ok – so it isn’t really as easy as that… but pretty close!

Mommabear used to make this soup at the *end of the month*… and you know what? It was so tasty, warm and filling that we never really felt the *end of the month* blues. Her recipe really is just 6 carrot, 1 onion and some stock… but I like to add some potatoes as well.. as it makes the soup thicker and even MORE filling! Plus a bit of garlic with the onion as it adds that extra *PUNCH*!!

Carrot Soup

10 carrots, peeled and chopped

4-5 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped

1 onion, diced

blob of butter

2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed

1.5l chicken stock (you can use vegetable stock if you like, but it isn’t really the same)

  1. Fry onion and garlic in the melted butter (in a large pot)
  2. Add the diced carrots, potatoes and stock
  3. Bring to the boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 20minutes (or until potatoes are cooked through)

  1. Liquidise and add salt/pepper to taste (although I find that there is sufficient salt in the stock…)
  2. Serve with fresh bread slathered in butter

  3. Hi Maxie, I’m dropping by to let you know that this is the recipe I picked for June 2015 Secret Recipe Club. It was quick, easy, with wonder flavor and very satisfying. You have a lovely blog here that gave me a glimpse into the foods enjoyed in another country. Thanks so much for sharing. Have a great week.
