Spicy Carrot Soup

Updated on June 11, 2014

I'm a big fan of casual dinners and especially when soup is the main course. Pairing a nice soup with a crusty bread makes a comforting and hearty meal. I like making soups with healthy ingredients that are also readily available. Spicy Carrot Soup is not only healthy, but delicious and quick to make. I like to make a double batch for dinner and have leftovers for lunch the next day, plus a few servings to freeze for a future lazy day.
