I had never heard of carrot soup until someone made some for me a few weeks ago.
It’s cold around here and soup is always a good idea for me. Because we enjoy a lot of soup, finding a variety of soups to try is essential.
I’ve always liked carrots. I am thrilled that my family enjoyed them too.
Easy Carrot Soup
Why shouldn’t we enjoy carrots more?
1 medium carrot is said to have nearly double the daily required Vitamin A in it. Carrots are also said to have some anti-oxidant properties.
Carrots do contain sugar naturally.
The average carrot has about 2.9 grams of sugar.
This is the only added sugar to this soup.
I usually have baby carrots around.
We love to snack on carrots. I also use them for baking cakes and muffins. I’m not the only one who enjoys carrots in my house. My dogs love getting carrots for treats.
