Carrot soup

Monday, April 22, 2013

Yesterday I was craving carrot soup eventhough I had planned on having butternut squash soup for my lunch. Luckily I had all the ingredients on hand, so I made a pot.

1-1/2 pounds of carrots (about 5 cups cut up)
1 large zucchini
1" raw ginger chopped (about 1 TBSP)
1 onion
3-4 cloves of garlic
cinnamon, tumeric, cumin, onion powder and black pepper to taste
4-5 cups of water

This is what it looked like cooked, before blending it all together with my stick blender (love that thing!)



Ready to eat with pumpkin seeds



I am still slowly recovering from my party pound - another 0.3 to go to get back to 134.5

    I'll be making my second batch tomorrow. I'm doing TP with Mandi (THEMRSH) and I'm going to try adding her suggestions. I think she told me she also added Thyme.

    Looks good! I haven't blogged about my new version yet but I scoured the internet for carrot ginger soups to look at other ingredients. There isn't much variance but two ingredients did catch my eye. So to my last batch I added the zest of an orange as well as 1 TB of agave. SO GOOD!

    Tonight is the last night of birthday celebration for awhile. My son turned 15 today! He wanted me to make him a chocolate cheesecake for desert, and General Tso's Chicken for supper. With all the sodium I have had this weekend, I think I will stay off the scale for about a week, and then venture back on to see if there is any real damage.

    Yum! I had that at lunch, but with sunflower seeds. I also use my stick blender and it really is so easy to clean up!

    I have to make the spicy vegetarian soup tomorrow for lunch!
    ( with chick peas) but I can't find Unsalted chick peas! Sigh!
