I guess I'm on this soup kick and have fallen hard core for this particular version. I made it in both my cooking classes this past month and I just can't seem to get enough. Roasting the carrots enhances their natural sweetness, but also concentrates their earthy flavor. The touches of the spices and honey are the perfect compliments to this warm, wintery soup. It's extremely easy to make because all the ingredients are likely to already be in your kitchen and the preparation is a cinch. And it's pretty low in calories and high in fiber to boot.

Ingredients

  • 4 tsp butter, divided, preferably soy-based butter like Earth Balance

  • ½ tsp cumin
  • 1 ½ Tbsp honey

    This is a wonderful soup! The touch of honey adds something fabulous. A great way to get kids to like veggies. I want to try it with my 5 yr old nephew. Thanks for the great pics too!
