This carrot soup is a kind of toned down, basic version since I am posting kid friendly dishes this week. The carrots lend an appealing color and sweetness to the soup besides making it an healthy option for kids. It is quite easy to prepare this and is suitable for both tiny tummies and adults alike. Go with garlic and spices / herbs for an adult version if preferred. This thick soup can be served either chilled or warm and hence suitable for all weathers.
This goes to "Kids' Delight" event, hosted this month by Pavani with the theme "5 Ingredient Fix".
1 Tbsp butter / oil
1 small, finely minced onion
3 carrots, peeled and cubed
1 tsp honey (optional)
Salt & pepper to taste
Seasoned bread croutons to garnish
* Heat butter / oil and add onion. Fry until they turn translucent.
* Next add carrots and saute for a couple of minutes. Add about 1.5 cup of water (or adjust accordingly) and cook on medium flame until they turn softer.
* Puree the carrot mixture in a blender. Stir in honey if using. If planning to serve chilled, refrigerate it.
* Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with bread croutons and serve.
