The Best Homemade Carrot Soup

“Nothing brings people together like good food.”

This is a recipe I have been promising to add to my blog for some time; so here it is!

I have always loved cooking for others; there is something great about spending time creating something and then watching others enjoy it.  Since becoming a parent, I’ve found my audience can be a bit hit and miss, but this recipe has always been a fail safe.  It is incredibly easy to make, and tastes amazing if I say so myself!  It is also vegan friendly.

Here is what you need and how to make it;


1 tbsp vegetable oil

1 red onion

450g carrots (approximately 4 large carrots)

1 tsp of coriander leaf from the jar or one handful of fresh coriander

A pinch of nutmeg (the secret ingredient)

Salt and pepper for seasoning

1.2 litres of vegetable stock


  1. Peel and finely chop the carrots and red onion.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large pan, add the chopped onion and cook for 3 minutes until it has softened.
  3. Add the carrots to the pan and cook for a further 3 minutes.
  4. Add the vegetable stock, nutmeg and coriander, and bring to the boil.  Simmer for 15-20 minutes until the carrots have softened.
  5. Either hand blend, or pour into a blender and blitz until the consistency is smooth.
  6. Taste and add seasoning.
  7. Serve up and enjoy!

I usually serve this soup up with freshly baked bread.  I don’t often have time to bake a fresh full loaf, so I use part baked bread rolls.  These can be easily picked up in most large supermarkets; and are really easy to make.  There is something very homely about breaking open a fresh steaming bread roll, and dunking it in to your soup.

I’m aiming to add at least a couple of our favourite family recipes to my blog every month, so keep an eye out for some more tasty additions!
