Creamy Carrot Soup

You look in your fridge and you see that you haven't used your carrots. What am I going to make? - Yet another smoothie or something else.

How about something else :) With Spring finally here and Bunnies all around, well the Easter Bunny and Easter not too far away that is - and with my girls loving to munch on raw carrots - why not make, a simple and quick soup.

If you're wondering if your little ones will eat this well heres what my girls did. Carys ate 4 bowls of the soup & Seren in her innocence said, "Mammy bunnies eat carrots, not carrot soup!" and ate 2 spoons full - well at least she tried it right :)

 Creamy Carrot Soup.

 12 good sized carrots
1 Large Onion
1 Stick of Butter
1 stem of fresh Rosemary
3/4 of  the carton of Half & Half 
(Or if you want it creamier, use Heavy Cream)
1 large Carton Chicken Broth
Salt and Pepper
Dash or two of Curry Powder

Clean & Peel the Carrots, then chop & dice carrots 
& Onion.

Using a large stock pot, melt the stick of butter
 add carrots, Onion, Rosemary, Salt and Pepper.

Allow the melted butter to coat the veggies

Then add the chicken broth

Make sure the broth covers all of the veggies.
Bring to the boil.

Once the soup has come to a boil, remove the Rosemary & discard.
Turn heat down to a simmer & cook until the carrots are soft.

Next, add some dashes of Curry Powder
Then blend using a immersion hand blender
 Remove from heat & use a regular blender, until till smooth and you have

Add the Half & Half
(Or heavy cream if you're using that)
Give it a quick Blend.

Give it a taste test and add more S&P if needed.

Serve with some freshly made Homemade Bread & an Arugula & Spinach Salad.
