Velouté de carottes

Like every early winter , I’m preparing myself to face the cold weather with a vitamins cure and a series of veggies soups that I prepare in large quantities, and freeze. Then when I feel lazy (or when I’m really not in a cooking mood), I just have to heat the soup and that’s it. Did I already told you that I’m a lazybone? Well, during winter time it’s getting worse!

This recipe, even heated is really delicious. As a starter or main-course, for the small hungers or just to get warm!
I like it when it’s creamy: for that I add a potato to the preparation, but this is optional. If you don’t, just reduce the amount of water.
You can also replace the cream by some coconut milk for a sweetest taste which goes well with carrots.

    Je crois que le velouté de carottes, c’est celui que je préfère :) Avec une pointe de cumin, il accompagne à merveille des bagels ! En tout cas, je retiens l’association carottes / boursin, à tester absolument ! Bone weekend
