Celebrating is about sharing, telling stories, talking. It's about eating a piece of cake that a friend made for you, having a glass of wine or savoring a cup of coffee. It's that unknown sensation that doesn't let you get up from the table after eating. It's much more than just placing silverware and plates on a table, it's creating an ambience, a style, a sensation, an unforgettable memory.

Carrot soup

These potatoes have nothing to do with the soup just wanted to share them because I found the love potato just before they were going to the oven.

A homey and comforting carrot soup for the gratefulness of the earth.
Came out lovely, aromatic and with a velvety texture.

8 carrots chopped
1 cup of butternut squash peeled and cut into chunks
1 onion finely chopped
1 leek chopped
1 tbsp fresh ginger root peeled and finely grated
3 tsp of olive oil

optional: coconut milk and toasted unsulphured coconut flakes

Serves 6

Heat the oil in a pot over medium heat. Add the onion and leek sauté until the onion begin to golden and get soft. Stir in the carrots and squash, grated ginger and cook for a minute. Season with salt. Add water to cover about 5 cups, bring to a boil. Simmer over a low heat and cover with a lid for about 30 minutes until veggies are tender.

Working into batches purée the soup in the food processor or blender until smooth and creamy.

Serve with coconut milk & toasted coconut.

Simple and sustainable. Totally vegetarian!

I´ve made a similar creamy soup with coconut milk and yes, it´s great. Also try adding roasted bell peppers, you´ll see the difference. Have a great weekend!

Dear Lola, I have been cooking with carrots too. This soup does look velvety and comforting. I am sure it would be delicious served cold too, since we are having a heat-wave.
