This is a great fall recipe…and perfect for those days when you’re down to nothing in the fridge! We topped it with organic sour cream and ate it with muffins.

Creamy Carrot Soup
Simply Natural Baby Food by Cathe Olson

3 1/2 (1 lb) carrots, cut into thick slices
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 onion, chopped
1/4 strip kombu (seaweed)
3 cups water
2 t tamari or Bragg’s
1 T tahini or nut butter (we used almond butter)
2 t miso
4 ounces or tofu (optional)
1 T fresh minced dill or 1 t dried
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley

Place carrots, garlic, onion, kombu, and water into medium sized pan. Cover and bring o a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer 15 -20 minutes, or until carrots are tender.

In a blender or food processor, puree cooked vegetables with remaining ingredients until completely smooth. You will need to do 2 batches.

Serve immediately or reheat later over low heat. Be careful not to boil when reheating as this will kill the enzymes in the miso.

4 servings.

    I have always been afraid to try carrot soup. It always looks so yummy, but I am not a huge fan of carrots. I do have a huge bag in the fridge that I may try your recipe with. Thanks for sharing!

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
