Have a pound bag of carrots you want to get rid of fast? This is a great, fairly easy way to do it! =) Tastes pretty good too!! You can add other veggies if you want but the carrots and onion were pretty much the only fresh veggies I had on hand and the spices are all optional, to taste, but they definitely make it more flavorful! =) It tasted and looked more like a lentil soup when it was finished. Also, if you don't have Bragg Liquid Aminos (you should get some!) you can also use bouillon or use broth instead of the water.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb baby carrots
  • 12 large onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoons cumin, powdered
  • 1 tablespoon chives, dried and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon celery, dried and sliced (you can use fresh celery if you prefer)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, powdered
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 12-1 teaspoon mustard, finely ground (optional)
  • 14-12 teaspoon red chili powder (optional)
  • 1 pinch cumin seed (optional)
  • 7 -8 tablespoons Braggs liquid aminos
  • water (probably about 8 cups)

Directions

  1. Clean and cut carrots. In halves, slices, however you want. The smaller the carrot pieces, the faster this will be finished.
  2. Put carrots in large pot on medium heat and add enough water to cover them fully. Add diced onions.
  3. Once water comes to a boil, take a hand potato masher and mash the carrots and onions. Repeat often over a 30-45 minute period. Optionally, you can remove half or all of the mixture to a blender (or use a stick blender) and puree it for a finer, easier creamy soup.
  4. Add spices listed (all are optional if you don't want to have all of them or you can add your own preferred spices) and the 5 tablespoons Bragg Liquid Aminos. Be sure to stir thoroughly. (You may want to add more water to make your soup more liquid. I recommend adding 1 tablespoons Bragg Liquid Aminos to every cup of water added. If you want a 'saltier' soup, just add more Bragg Liquid Aminos since it's healthier than salt.).
  5. Lower heat to low-medium and let simmer for 10-20 minutes. Then serve and garnish if you want to. =).
