Potato Carrot Soup
Hola familia! I know, I know... You're probably thinking "Jeremie it's 90 degrees outside and I'm sitting at the beach getting a tan, why in the world would I want a soup?!"! But I assure you this soup is so delicious that you won't even pay attention to whether it's snowing or blazing hot outside. With such simple ingredients like potatoes and carrots, this soup is jam packed with flavors and good for you ingredients. The best part is (other than the deliciousness this soup holds) that you can make a large pot of this and freeze it for those lazy days in your work week that you just can't stand being in the kitchen. One of my favorite things to eat are definitely veggie packed soups, they're so versatile and the flavor variety is endless. This is a recipe that you can definitely play around with and you'll never be disappointed.
I came up with this recipe on a day where I had a cold and a cough that would just not quit! The veggies and heat this soup has really helped sooth the cold and definitely put me in a food coma. A full stomach and 8 1/2 hour "nap" later, I felt like superman and was ready to take on the world again. I'm not saying this soup is magic... but it just might be ;) Try out this recipe and let me know what you think of it.
