potato and carrot soup : recipe

CarrotandPotatoSoup-7Now that fall is fast approaching on the prairies, I have been craving nothing but warm, comforting, and salty foods. Soup in particular is high on my list of something that I could eat daily. In fact, most days, I do. Creamy soup is my favourite.

This recipe is a combination of several potato and carrot recipes that I have found online. Although not yet perfected, I thought that I would post my first attempt at it. It’s also the first time that I have ever used a Crock Pot! I certainly enjoyed using it, and have already planned great things for it and I. In the meantime, here is my beginner’s soup recipe.

Potato and Carrot Soup


3 russet potatoes
4 carrots
4 cups vegetable stock
2 cups whole milk
1 tsp yeast
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
cayenne, to taste
dill, to taste


Crock Pot

Carrot and Potato Soup - 4Steps:

1. Peel the potatoes and carrots, then chop them into cubes. Combine them in the Crock Pot along with the vegetable stock. I cooked it on medium for nearly 5 hours.

2. Once the vegetables are done, combine the mix and the yeast in a blender. Puree the mixture until it has a creamy texture. 

3. Once pureed, pour the soup mix back into the Crock Pot, this time set on low. Add the milk.

4. Begin adding the spices to taste. It will naturally be very salty, so leave the salt as the last spice. I went heavy on the dill.

5. Cook your soup for another 30 minutes. Then indulge!

Carrot and Potato Soup - 5I wanted to make this soup without the use of onion, only because (once an onion lover) ever since becoming pregnant, I cannot go near them! However, I think that the addition of onions, 1/3 cup, would greatly improve the soup! Next time, I will try adding more vegetables, and perhaps some ham as well. Last but not least, I plan to top it with cheese. Mmmm. Now I am hungry again!

  • Man, did Remy and I have a standoff this morning. All because she didn’t want to wear socks with her boots. She threw a massive tantrum, and I yelled at her. Afterwards, we went for our walk and everything was back to normal. That is, aside from her puffy eyes and tear-stained face. My poor girl. Parenting can be so hard sometimes. Thank goodness for children being so resilient. 
That disaster behind me is nearly gone. We’re currently installing the last of our kitchen shelves, and our new sink arrived this morning. I’m excited to have a less cluttered spare room!
Have a wonderful week, everyone. This room has not yet been touched by us. It is our master bedroom. Everything about it (aside from our furniture) is exactly the same as when we purchased our home. I think that if we do list in the near future, it will be the only room in our house that we did not renovate. Part of me wants to stay just to finish it. A small part.
