This recipe can easily be dairy free, gluten free, Vegan, and packed with so much Beta Carotene that you’ll be able to see a black cat, in a dark room, at night, blindfolded! (I’ll stop now). But your eyes will thank you.
You can knock out this soup in a less than 20 minutes. So if friends are coming by for lunch, this is a really handy recipe to have on hand. I’ve been making this recipe for clients in my Private Chef business for years, especially when they have dietary restrictions. This recipe has been a foundation to meet individual needs.
Some of my clients are trying to lose weight to maintain a healthier lifestyle. For them, this soup is done without cream, or butter, and the challenge is keeping it light without losing creaminess. A Vitamix (<- affiliate) gets the job done, with rotating blades at 34,000 rpm, EVERYTHING becomes a smooth, creamy, decadent consistency.
Every time I write one of these recipes, I dig a little into the story and background of each recipe, (did you know the French used to make this soup with potatoes as well?). This version is simplified, delicious, and just so versatile!Print
