Most creamy soups are filled with fat – but not this one. Indulge with this healthy carrot soup. Serve with a side of lean chicken breast or grilled fish and a small salad for a balanced meal.
Here’s what you need:
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 small onion, diced
- Dash of sea salt
- 4 cups carrots, diced
- 5 cups filtered water
- 3 Tablespoons White Miso
In a soup pot heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and onion with a dash of salt and cook for 4 minutes. Add carrots and stir, cook for another 4 minutes. Add the water and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat, cover and simmer until carrots are tender, 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 dissolved. Add back into the soup and simmer for 5 more minutes.
