Carrot Soup

This was originally my Nana’s recipe, which I inherited from my mom and is still a firm favourite in the family.  I have on many a cold evening done this moreish recipe as a starter for friends and they all seem to ask for the recipe.

Carrot Soup


30ml butter
1 large onion peeled and sliced
2 medium potatoes peeled and diced
1 packet carrots peeled and chopped
1.5 litres chicken stock
Salt and pepper to taste
Pinch of dried sweet basil


  1. In a pot, melt the butter and glaze the onion and potatoes for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the carrots and stock, salt, pepper and basil and simmer until the carrots are tender.
  3. Remove from the heat and liquidise.

  1. It looks easy to make. It’s light and seems delicious. I think I would love this recipe for dinner when I’m on diet or wanna eat healthy. Thanks for sharing.

    • It is a fabulous recipe and is really easy to make. Little ones also thoroughly enjoy it! I often make it as a starter for dinner parties and serve it with melba toast. Enjoy it when you make it.
