Carrot Soup

I haven’t tried this one yet, but it sounds pretty easy and delicious (if you like carrots).  It’s loaded with beta carotene, which is excellent for boosting immunity, healing infections and preventing macular degeneration among many other positive health benefits.

All Natural Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large leek, sliced
  • 2 pints vegetable or chicken stock
  • 4 organic carrots
  • 3 oz ground almonds
  • 2 egg yolks
  • seal salt & black pepper to taste

How to:

  1. In a large saucepan, heat oil and leek for about 5 minutes on medium-high heat, stirring to prevent burning
  2. Add stock, carrots & almonds
  3. Turn down to simmer and leave veggies to soften (about 15 minutes)
  4. Beat yolks in a bowl
  5. Blend carrot & almond mixture in a blender
  6. Pour into bowl with eggs yolks & beat
  7. Pour all ingredients back into saucepan, heating mixture gently
  8. Add salt & pepper to taste
  9. Serve with organic bread or croutons
  10. Enjoy!
