Carrot soup

It is not very traditional in Romania to have creamed soups and when I have joined Belgium I had a shock to discover that almost all soups were unclear. I was used to see what ingredients are in my soup, while here it was just a cream, I was staying away from any kind of soup that was pureed. My biggest fear was that those soups were made from powdered soup.
One day I took the courage to make a pureed myself. I was pleasantly surprised to see that was not that bad. And since then I try all the colors for my soups... of course with fresh ingredients. This one is a yellow one.
Let's try it ...

  • 750g peeled carrots
  • 2 onions
  • 480g celery (root)
  • 2 potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon natural vegetable stock (concentrated)

  1. Put 3 liters of water to boil.
  2. Cut the carrots in big slices
  3. Slice the onions
  4. Dice celery and potatoes.
  5. When the water is boiling, add all ingredients.
  6. Let them boil until the carrots and celery are soft.
  7. Take a hand blender and smash well all the ingredients in the soup.
