Carrot, garlic and thyme soup

/

I didn’t think I would still be making soup in July. My love for summer salads means that as soon as winter loosens its grip my hand blender usually hibernates for a few months. But rather than state the obvious, I will just say that bowls of heart-warming soup have entirely outnumbered how many salads I have enjoyed this year.

This soup really is the definition of easy. There’s no pot watching – you can rely on your oven to let you know when it’s ready and then you just need to add a few finishing touches.

Carrot, garlic and thyme soup

  • 1 kg of carrots, chopped
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbsp of dried thyme
  • Olive oil
  • 1.7 litres of vegetable stock
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Heat the oven to 200°C and add the carrots to a roasting tin with a glug of olive oil and the garlic cloves, still in their skins. Season, add the thyme and roast in the oven for 40 minutes.
  2. Squeeze the garlic from their skins and alongside the carrots, add to a pan with 1.7 litres of vegetable stock and blend. Season with salt and pepper, and add a little more stock if you feel the soup is too thick.

See, I told you this soup was easy. Now it’s your turn!

    It is sad that our summer is calling for soup rather than salad this year but this one looks delicious :) And yes, I want to eat one of those black bottom cupcakes every day!

    I know it’s not summer food, but I could really eat soup all year round. Yum!

    I’ve never tried carrot soup with thyme. I always default to coriander, or occasionally ginger.
    Thyme sounds good though. Might have to give it a go.
