About this Creamy Carrot Soup

This Creamy Carrot Soup is both gluten-free and dairy-free. That means no gluten or dairy was used to make it. You could make it fully vegan but substituting the gluten-free chicken broth with gluten-free vegetable broth.

Additionally, this recipe can be Fasano or Non-Responsive Celiac Diet friendly. Just substitute the canned chicken broth for Fasano friendly chicken broth, or coconut milk.

It also can compliant with a low-nickel diet if the canned broth used is substituted for homemade broth.

More importantly, this recipe features potatoes and carrots, which are the star of the show. Blended together, these two root vegetables create a creamy and delicious flavor.

But flavor isn’t all this carrot soup recipe offers! Between the antioxidants of the carrots and the potassium in the carrots,  you’ve got a nourishing and cozy meal!

Creamy Carrot Soup Ingredients

This creamy carrot soup recipe is super simple but don’t let that fool you. This recipe might be easy but it packs a ton of flavor.

The carrots in this recipe add a sweetness to it that balance the potatoes and broth. It is essential that you wash your carrots before using them for the best taste. You may also substitute baby carrots for whole carrots in this recipe if it’s easier.

The potatoes in this recipe add creaminess and thickness to the recipe that is unmatched. Building on the potato and carrot match-up in vegan cheese sauces, these two flavors build a nice creamy flavor together with out needing any dairy.

The broth in this recipe adds more flavor and helps turn it into soup. Remember, if you’re vegan, use vegetable broth. And if you’re looking for low-nickel or Fasano diet friendly meals, use homemade broth for this recipe.

Then we get into the spices! This recipe calls for salt, pepper, and garlic. However, this is to build a solid soup base, you can add other spices as you desire. (I like chili seasoning as it adds a nice kick to the soup).

And that’s all you need. Like I said, this carrot soup recipe is simple, but that doesn’t mean it’s flavorless.
