Spicy carrot soup

During the summer, it is a light soup that I like to eat. Vegetable soups are perfect for the hot days, so why not to try a delicious spiced carrot soup.
There is no wonder that so far I tried different recipes for the carrot soups like  Carrot soup or Spicy carrot-zucchini soup with lovage. Which one I like the most ? Well ... all of them are great and it is difficult to chose.

  • 750g carrots (peeled and sliced)
  • 2.5l water (or it can be replaced with chicken / vegetable stock)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 big onion (diced)
  • 1 garlic clove (diced)
  • 1 tablespoon caraway (grinded)
  • 1 bunch of fresh persil (chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon coriander (powder)
  • 1.2 teaspoon ginger (powder)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika (powder)
  • 3 medium potatoes (peeled and diced)
  • salt
  • pepper

  1. Heat the olive oil in the soup pot and add the onion and garlic. Cook for 4 minutes on low heat.
  2. Add the spices (caraway, persil, coriander, ginger and paprika) and stir.
  3. Add the carrots, potatoes and water.
  4. Let the soup arrive to boiling state and then cook for 30 minutes or until the carrots and potatoes can be easily smashed with a fork.
  5. Blend the soup until has a creamy texture.
  6. When serving, sour it with lemon or orange juice if you prefer. You can also add pepper and fresh parsley.
