carrot tomato soup

carrot tomato soup recipe – this is one of the most simplest and easy soup recipe to make.

the soup has the sweetness of the carrots & onions, along with the slight tanginess of the tomatoes. garlic in the soup gives a slight sharpness with the earthy flavors of cumin.

its a smooth textured soup like tomato soup and has a similar consistency. excellent for all seasons and for everybody- adults and kids alike.

this is my mil’s soup recipe which is favored by all of us. instead of butter i have used olive oil in the soup. i have kept the soup ingredients such that it can be made by everybody, hence not added one indian ingredient – asafoetida aka hing. however, if you have asafoetida/hing, you can add it to the soup.

the recipe below mentions the soup, the way my mil makes it. i just made the soup minus butter, asafoetida, spinach and french beans. so these ingredients are optional and if you want you can add them.

adding black pepper is my own variation to this soup. if making for kids, then skip adding black pepper. you can also add some sugar to make the soup slightly sweet.

    Yummy and healthy recipe. Tried hing in soups for the first time. I have heard naturopathy version of this soup with coconut milk (might be instead of cream or cheese), but haven´t tried. Anyways, your recipe without any cream or cheese is wonderful!!

      katie, the substitute for asafoetida is onion-garlic but i don’t know how they will contribute to the overall taste in this soup. so i suggest skip adding asafoetida.
