Carrot soup with Cream Cheese

I absolutely love Soup and while on the MSC Cruise Ship I ate a carrot soup that took my breath away.

I Loved it so much I decided to try and make it myself and after watching a YouTube video to prevent a total disaster I was quite impressed with myself.

What you need :

  • Carrots
  • onions
  • Salt and pepper or Aromat (my favourite)
  • Butter
  • flour
  • milk / cream or both (half and half)
  • Cream Cheese

 

Appliances needed:

  • a Pot and a Pan or two pots
  • Blender / food processor ( I used a hand blender)

 

Steps I followed:

1.  Cook the sliced carrots with the chopped onions in boiling water- you may add the salt and pepper if you wish together with it as well.

2.  Once it has cooked nice and soft blend it to the form of puree ( try to keep some of the water together with the carrots and onions to keep it in a liquid form and not to dry)

3.  Melt your butter in a pan / pot and once almost completely melted add a little bit of flour and mix well.

4.  Immediately after add the milk / half and half and mix well till you have a creamy texture.

5. Add the cream with the puree carrots and mix well.

6.  I blended it together again just to be sure the carrots are all nice and blended.

7. I then added a spoon full of Cream Cheese and mixed it in with the soup for taste.

 

If I should say so myself I found it delicious and I was very proud of myself for making my very first Carrot soup.
