How to Make Carrot Soup Recipe 

I never wanted to learn how to make a carrot soup recipe. When I was young, I really could not bear the taste of cooked carrots back then. I could handle raw ones occasionally, but that is it. I remember when I was in school and had to eat lunch in the cafeteria. Back then there were no choices; you had to eat what was on your plate. I mean you HAD to eat what was on your plate! I would sit and gag over those carrots.


When I became an adult, I taught myself to like carrots. I started by learning how to make a carrot soup recipe whiich contained a variety of other vegetables also. I put a lot of effort in doing this because of the publicized health benefits in eating them. Besides of the fiber and antioxidants, many stories were told of how this vegetable would drastically help the eye sight; something which has been a problem in my family. Somehow I thought if I had a mouthful of mixed vegetables it would be easier to eat the carrots. After the soup I make stew with carrots making sure I ate some of the carrots. Eventually I became attached to this orange root vegetable; now I really love a plain creamy carrot soup recipe.

I amazed myself now how I automatically throw carrots in most things that I prepare; both raw and cooked.  It is so easy to add carrots to almost all soups that I make. Below I have several of my soup recipes; a few which contain mostly carrots and some which I add carrots to. All are very good!
