Quick Carrot Soup

Soups are very easy to prepare. It is a hot, light, spicy, soup. I am sure anytime you can enjoy this yummy soup.  You can add some more ingredients like lemon, cilantro, mint etc. for some more flavor of the soup. I dipped bread pieces in soup. This classic of carrot soup is vibrantly colorful and aromatic. The basic procedure is by thickening the natural starch from the carrots.

Notes.

Or, after puréeing, add 1 Tbsp. fresh thyme leaves before bringing the soup back to a simmer.Use care when processing hot items in a blender as the hot steam can sometimes blow the blender lid off. Cool down the carrot soup items little bit and then shift to the blender.
