HAPPY SOUP = ROASTED CARROT and TOMATO SOUP

IMG_0011

I’m definitely more friendly with soups these days. I ditched my cold salads and waved them ”good bye”, stocked my pantry with warming spices, favourite pulses and veg!Lots of veg! I know how most people feel about Autumn but I quite like it(except for those really windy and rainy days-go away!). Autumn is full of awesome flavours and it’s got the best vegetable in a year, so I’m going to make the most of them.

I’m a fanatical carrot eater.Do you know anyone craving raw carrots dipped in cashew nut butter at 11 p.m.? Well, you know now 🙂  It is very likely that in my previous life I was a rabbit!I could’ve also been a squirrel considering the amount of nuts I scoff! But surprisingly I’ve never made or even sample carrot soup.Of course it was until recently….I was looking for some inspiration on my pinterest page and it turned out everyone was making carrot soup so I thought I must give it a try! This soup was created basing on this fantastic recipe 🙂 Just added some tomatoes and nstural yoghurt from myself and decided not to roast chickpeas(I had a lazy day!). I have also used parsley leaves instead of sage and there is no almonds in my version. The colour of this soup will make you smile!It’s just insanely orange!Definitely the most beautiful soup I’ve ever seen 🙂
