This refreshing and cozy Heirloom Carrot Soup with Peanut Butter and Basil is vegan and gluten free. It gets its creaminess from the pureed carrots and peanut butter, a hint of natural sweetness from the carrots and basil and a touch of heat from red chili flakes and ginger. It’s the perfect winter warmer!
I came home from the farmer’s market last week with a huge bag of heirloom carrots and we were having trouble eating them all. Yes, even dietitians get sick of carrot sticks. Even when they come in gorgeous colors.
Then I thought… what if I make a heart- and soul-warming soup? With a little bit of sweetness and spice? It was love at first bite.
Because the heirloom carrots are such beautiful colors, try to save a few slices to garnish your soup. Add some bright and contrasting color with fresh basil leaves and season with salt and pepper to taste. Amazing how that extra touch makes this soup even more special!
You can ever sprinkle your soup with some extra powdered peanut butter. As a PB fanatic I always add more…
I want to take a bite and have to keep reminding myself… it’s a screen!
