Carrot Soup Recipe

Anyone looking for a super quick and easy meal?

Because that’s what this carrot soup is. So fast, so easy, and there are several options for cooking it – which always makes me happy. I like having options.

If you need to get the soup going in the morning and have it ready when you get home, you can use the slow cooker.

If you want to eat in about an hour you can do it on the stove (it needs to simmer for about 40 minutes, so you’re not actively doing anything for most of this time). And if you like crazy fast cooking (I know I do!) then pull out your Instant Pot and you can be serving up this tasty carrot soup in under a half hour.

This soup can also be served either hot or cold, and can be made a day or two in advance as it reheats well too.

I feel like that checks all the boxes for a soup recipe, right?

No meat, which at my house means a few disappointed people, but I enjoy having a light meal like this sometimes.

Served with a quick salad and some of these cream biscuits, it makes the perfect quick and easy meal for those nights that you’re in a rush and don’t feel like a big meal. It’s also perfect for lunches, either kept warm in a thermos or served cold.

I will admit that my kids are not super huge fans of this soup, but I also don’t think they’ve given it much of a chance.

I’ve been making it for years, and the first time I made it for the kids, I used some carrots that weren’t at their peak…. I don’t recommend that. Use nice, fresh, preferably organic carrots for this soup – you can taste the difference here!

So, it wasn’t that great the first time the kids tried it, and now they won’t give it another shot. Oh well, I’ll wear them down. They’ll like it eventually – carrot soup with dill in it is just too good for them to be missing out on!
