8 ingredient chunky potato and carrot soup is soooooo easy to make and it will warm your body and soul. This is comfort food at its best.
Why? Why am I telling you that it’s the best comfort food; because it’s hot, easy, comforting, and healthy. Haha, you didn’t know where I was going with that at first, did you?
This soup was inspired by the fact that the produce in my refrigerator and pantry was running on empty. I had a few carrots that looked sad and lonely in the vegetable drawer, and potatoes that were beginning to look less like Mr. Potato Head and more like a science experiment. They needed to be turned into something delicious that minute or planted for next year’s harvest thrown into the woods for the animals. So I made this.
Isn’t it funny how sometimes the best recipes are created from desperation? This 8 ingredient chunky potato and carrot soup is now one of my favorites, I’ll be making it a lot this winter. The texture is fabulous, it’s creamy and chunky at the same time, and the flavor is soft and savory, thanks to the dried Italian seasonings.
As I mentioned before, it’s also really healthy. Potatoes get such a bad rap. They have the reputation of being a fattening food. They are if you’re eating them fried or pouring a ton of butter and cheese on them. But when eaten in their purest form, potatoes are an excellent source of vitamins B-6, B-3, and C. They’re also a great source of potassium, manganese, and copper. The carrots in this soup also add a whole lot of healthy vitamin A and K, and biotin, among other nutrients.
This is a soup that you can feel good about eating because it will make you feel good!
I actually had a big steaming bowl of it for breakfast yesterday. That’s how much I love this soup. It gave me a ton of energy and it kept me satisfied until late afternoon. Try this 8 ingredient chunky potato and carrot soup, and come back and tell me how much you like it. I’ll be waiting right here.
