This Carrot Soup is so full of flavor it may very well become your new favorite soup! Who knew carrot soup could be THIS GOOD!?!
This recipe was inspired by a recipe from Top Chef Season 5, Episode 9 where contestant Chef Jamie Lauren made a carrot soup that blew the judges away! The judges were wowed by a carrot soup and surprised even themselves when they said it was the best soup they had ever had. I knew I needed to have that soup. The soup that she made was a bit more complex with a red pepper oil and cucumber raita. This recipe is for just the soup base which is a stand out all by itself.
What if I don’t have shallots?This recipe calls for shallots in addition to a regular white onion. Shallots are a smaller member of the onion family that have a sweeter and more mild taste. If you don’t have access to shallots, or simply don’t want to buy them, you can always leave them out, but they really do add a wonderful bit of flavor. You could always try using a sweet onion instead of the white onion as another option.
