As mentioned in Day 46 of The Challenge
Soup season continues! (Does it ever really stop?) A friend recently gave us quite a large bag full of sage, so needs must... This was a first try at this soup, but it will be sticking around now. Very tasty, quick to pull together and a good twist on the various other carrot-based soups we make. Many thanks to my hubby for putting it together!
1 kg carrots, chopped
2 onions, chopped
4 potatoes, chopped
1 l of veggie stock
1/2 c dried sage
2 tsp honey
1/2 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1) Heat oil in a soup pot and sauté onions. Add carrots and potatoes and allow to char briefly on the bottom of the pan.
2) Add stock and sage and bring to a simmer. Add honey and cook for about a half hour.
3) Blitz til smooth, taste test and serve.
This has got to be one of the simplest of soups, but it was warming and satisfying on a cold October lunch. We had it with crusty bread, local cheese and home made Green Tomato Chutney.
