Ready In:
6hrs 15mins




  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until softened, 6 to 8 minutes, stirring often to cook evenly.
  • Put the potatoes, carrots, garlic, and herbs in the slow cooker; add the onions and oil, scraping them out of the pan. Add enough of the water or broth to cover everything. Cover and cook on HIGH for 1 hour.
  • Turn the cooker to LOW and cook until the vegetables are soft, 5 to 7 hours. Puree in batches in a food processor or right in the slow cooker with a handheld immersion blender; the soup will be nice and thick. Stir in the honey and grate the nutmeg right over the crock. Season with salt and pepper. Keep warm on LOW without letting it come to a boil until serving. Ladle the hot soup into bowls and enjoy.

    Can it be made in an Instant Pot?

    We loved this soup! It is an easy recipe and produces a rich, hardy, and satisfying soup. <br/><br/>Thank you for sharing it.<br/><br/>Playing with this recipe, we've had great success with the following four revisions / additions:<br/>1) Cooking the garlic with the onions to mellow and enrich the garlic.<br/>2) Add some garlic and onion powders to layer those flavors.<br/>3) Swapped the honey for molasses, which made a slightly sweeter, tangier soup.<br/>4) Added some paprika for both the taste and color.

    I have had this recipe on my "to cook" list for almost 3 years! I finally got around to it tonight, and it was great! The honey and the nutmeg are a great addition. Without it it would just taste like any other autumn stew. Thanks for sharing!

    I never thought of making it in a crock pot before so will do that the next time I make carrot soup. Thanks for the recipe!
