Storing and Freezing Carrot Soup
Soups freeze well, and this carrot version is no different. Frozen carrot soup will store for up to six months and reheats perfectly, from frozen, on the stovetop over low heat.
Ingredients for your favourite carrot soup
- 2 table spoons olive oil
- 1 small onion (approx half a cup) diced
- 4 Large carrots
- 2 cups of tomato puree
- 3 cups vege broth
- 2 tablespoons coconut aminos
- 2 good pinches of fresh black pepper
- Fresh herbs like parsley or basil to garnish (optional)
Instructions to prepare the soup
Prepare the vegetables by peeling and roughly chopping the carrots and dicing the onion.
Heat oil in a sauce pan over a medium heat and add diced onions, sauté the onions for a few minutes, you don’t want the pan too hot so that the onions brown to quickly, the slower you cook the onions the more deep flavour you will achieve.
Once the onions have begun to slightly caramelize, add the chopped carrots to the pan and cook them for three or four minutes before adding the rest of the ingredients.
Add the tomato puree, vegetable stock and season with coconut aminos and black pepper. Bring to a soft boil and lower heat to a gentle simmer.
Once the carrots are soft and easily pierced with a sharp knife, turn the heat off and allow to cool for five minutes.
Carefully use an emersion blender (stick blender) to combine everything together, creating a velvety and luxuriously smooth soup.
Taste and adjust seasoning, if required.
Serve in bowls and finish with a crack of black pepper and some fresh herbs.
