Cream of Carrot Almond Soup | Rich Soups | Easy soups for kids

As we conclude our Soup series week here at Cooking Carnival, today's is a rich, creamy soup that's more of a light brunch rather than an appetiser. Team it with some Roasted Garlic focaccia as we did and you have an awesome brunch / supper.

My kids definitely enjoyed these soupy treats, as did I :) Hope you did too, In case you missed some of the soups this week, here's a quick recap

Corn Spinach Soup
Bottlegourd Soup
Chukandar ka Shorba
Tomato Veg Clear soup
Veg Manchow Soup

Today's richness comes from the fresh cream, almond meal and the juicy Carrots. We were lucky to have a bunch of Organic baby Carrots come our way from a friend, so made this as soon as we saw them :)

I wish I had clicked a pic of those baby carrots - my little one was so excited to see the carrots along with fresh green stalk on top, she was hopping like one happy bunny :)


So, if you have access to fresh carrots (the orange, not the red variety), do make these, although frozen should work as well. Lets get to make these :)

Gluten Free Cream of Carrot-Almond Soup | Can be made vegan too :)

Prep time : 15 mins ; Cook time : 10 mins ; Serves : 4

Ingredients:
  • Fresh Carrots - 150 gms
  • Onion - 1 large
  • Garlic - 2 pods
  • Veg Stock - 2 cups (unsalted) or use plain water
  • Cheese powder - 1 tsp
  • Salt & pepper - to taste
  • Almond meal - 4 TBSP
  • Fresh Cream - 3 TBSP- skip for vegan version

Method:
  1. Peel the skin lightly , dice the carrots. In a pressure cooker, cook the carrots with the onion and garlic till soft. ( you could skip the onion / garlic entirely and it wouldn't make too much of a difference) 
  2. Cool and puree. 
  3. In a sauce pan, add the puree, veg stock (or water), almond meal, salt , a dash of pepper powder and whisk well. Simmer on a low flame for 7-8 till it considerably thickens. Switch off the flame
  4. Stir in the cheese powder, fresh cream and mix lightly.
  5. Serve hot with a dash of cream and crushed black pepper on the top :)
