Carrot Soup Recipe

A bowl of creamy, savory carrot soup is pure comfort for lunch or dinner. I love to have soups during the month of Ramadan.

This quick and easy soup recipe is ideal for Iftar because it's light, mild and delicious.

This recipe is basic, so feel free to play around with spices and herbs and make it your own. I add chopped coriander and a squeeze of lemon.

It's thick and creamy without being heavy and without potato, cream or thickener. If you love soup like I do then you will enjoy this simple soup.

Tips and Bits

Add some roasted sunflower or pumpkin seeds for a crunch.

You can also blend the coriander with the soup until smooth.

I like to drizzle olive on top before serving.
