Today though I started when Miss 1yo was sleeping and it worked really well. I really must be more organised and do this more often!
With no plans I opened the fridge to see what we had…carrots, lots of carrots. So what do you make when you have carrots and not much else? Carrot Soup!
I do have my soup recipe that can be adjusted to whatever I have in the fridge but I decided to be adventurous and make something different.
After a little search I found this recipe and I have adjusted it a little to suit.
So here is my version of the above recipe
2 ProPoints per serve
- 1.5kg carrots, peeled
- 2 onions, quartered
- 6 cloves or garlic
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 2 tsp butter
- 2 tsp ground cumin
- 3 tbs white wine
- 4 sprigs of thyme
- 6 cups Chicken or Vegetable Stock
Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius
Chop carrots into chunks
Place in a casserole dish (with a lid) along with the onions, garlic, olive oil, butter, cumin and white wine. I dotted my butter over the top so as it melted it would cover all the carrots more evenly.

Cover and place in preheated oven for 1hr or until carrots are tender
Add stock and blend
Season to taste
