Carrot Potato Soup

Carrot Potato Soup

This hearty, autumn soup is full of carrots and ginger. It is very adaptable – I’m planning on making a sweet potato version this week. The soup goes wonderfully with a thick slice of fresh bread, especially a quick bread like the Parmesan thyme bread pictured here (recipe coming soon!).

The recipe does not make a lot, which is nice if, like me, you live alone, and get tired of eating soup for every meal for a week. If you’d like more, double the recipe – it freezes well.
