Who’s ready to get their orange on? Let’s strengthen our eyes with tons of beta carotene while we nourish our bodies with antioxidants, all while we ooh and aah our way to the bottom of the bowl of this delicious creamy roasted carrot, garlic, and rosemary soup recipe.
I bought a humongous bag of organic carrots at Costco a few weeks ago and I’ve been eating carrots faster than Bugs in a cartoon marathon. I’ve made my popular BBQ pulled carrot recipe for game day, my sumptuous mushroom bourguignon, and this yummy and super easy roasted carrot soup.
My dogs are in heaven because they love carrots as much as I do. They stand next to the sink waiting for the peels to fly off of the peeler and onto the floor. They’re so smart.
You’re going to love this savory and garlicky soup. First of all, roasted carrots. Roasting brings out the sweetness and they get all caramelized and sticky. Then there’s the roasted garlic. Joy! And the roasted rosemary is so fragrant and slightly bitter and it complements the sweetness of the carrots and garlic so beautifully.
How to Make Roasted Carrot, Garlic, and Rosemary Soup
Did I mention that this soup is easy to make? SO. EASY.
All you’ll need to do is peel your carrots and garlic cloves, and pull the rosemary leaves off of their stems. Toss them with a teeny tiny bit of olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, toss, and roast them until they’re tender and browned to perfection. Then put them in a high powered blender with some unsweetened almond milk (I use Silk brand) and whip them up into a creamy soup. Put the soup in a pan and add a bit more milk, salt and pepper, and heat it up. That’s it.
Now that the temperature is getting cooler and it’s getting darker earlier, soup is such a cozy thing to make for dinner. Heat up a loaf of whole grain bread, pour yourself a glass of red wine, and cuddle up with a big bowl of this creamy vegan carrot, garlic, and rosemary soup.
If you can’t do that because you have kids to shuffle off to sporting events, then put the soup in a thermos, wrap up the bread, and bring it with you. Who says you can’t have dinner as a family? It doesn’t matter where you eat, it just matters that you eat together. Right?
This would also make a wonderful lunch, or if you’re a weirdo like I am, you might want to eat it for breakfast. Just make sure you don’t go straight to an exercise or yoga class, because, garlic.
I topped my soup with garlicky roasted kale chips. That recipe is coming soon. If you have any fall recipe requests, hit me up. I love a challenge.
Notes on the Rosemary and Garlic – For the best flavor and results make sure that you use fresh rosemary and garlic. Dried will not turn out the way that this recipe was intended.
Notes on the Almond Milk – You must use unsweetened to get the best flavor. I love Silk brand original unsweetened for my soup recipes.
