Creamy Carrot Soup

If you love light but flavorful soup, this creamy carrot soup recipe is just the thing.

Super healthy too! Carrots are loaded with great nutrients like Vitamins A, C, K, B8, pantothenic acid, folate, potassium, iron, copper, and manganese. They have a ton of antioxidants too!


Here's all it takes to make this yummy, filling soup.






  • 2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
  • 1/3 cup sliced shallots
  • 1 pound organic carrots, peeled and cut into 2” pieces
  • 2 cups fat-free, low-sodium organic chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 8 fresh mint sprigs



1. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat.

2. Add shallots to pan; cook 2 minutes or until almost tender, stirring occasionally.

3. Add carrots; cook 4 minutes.

4. Add broth; bring to a boil.

5. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 22 minutes or until tender.

6. Add ginger; cook 8 minutes or until carrots are very tender.

7. Cover and let stand 5 minutes at room temperature.

8. Pour half of the carrot mixture in a blender.

9. Remove center piece of blender lid (to allow steam to escape).

10. Secure blender lid on blender.

11. Place a clean towel over opening in blender lid (to avoid splatters).

12. Blend until smooth.

13. Pour into a large bowl.

14. Repeat procedure with remaining carrot mixture.

15. Return pureed soup to the pan; heat over medium heat 2 minutes or until heated.

16. Spoon soup into small bowls, and top with plain yogurt and fresh mint sprigs.

This soup is ideal for brunch and I even like it as a chilled soup in the Summer months. Enjoy!
