Protein Packed Creamy Carrot Soup
In order to make most creamy soups they get filled with added fat, but this carrot soup allows you to indulge without all the calories. Serve with a side of lean protein and a small salad for a fully balanced meal.
- 2 teaspoon olive oil
- 6 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 small onion, diced
- Dash of sea salt
- 8 cups carrots, diced
- 10 cups filtered water
- 6 Tablespoons White Miso
In a soup pot heat the olive oil over medium heat. Mix in garlic and onion with a dash of salt and cook for 4 minutes.
Add carrots and mix well, cooking for another 4 minutes. Then add water and bring to a boil.
Cover the pot and simmer until the carrots are tender, for about 20 minutes. Use a hand blender to process the soup until smooth.
Remove 1 cup of the soup and mix the miso into it until it is completely dissolved. Add this back into the soup and simmer for another 5 more minutes.
