Ingredients

  • 1 onion
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 7 oz carrots (200 g)
  • 1 ¾ lbs potatoes (800 g)
  • 4 cups vegetable stock (1 l)
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Prepare your ingredients by peeling and dicing the vegetables.
  • Heat up some cooking spray or vegetable oil in a large pot on medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, and sauté them for a few minutes until the onion is soft and translucent.
  • Add the diced potatoes, carrots, vegetable stock and nutmeg to the pot. Cover with a lid, and bring the soup to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, and leave it to cook until the vegetables are soft enough to easily pierce with a fork with little resistance, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Use an immersion blender (like this one from Amazon) to puree the soup completely smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve the soup immediately while it’s still hot!

Notes

Can I use frozen carrots or potatoes? – Absolutely! Both will work just fine in this recipe. I love to freeze any vegetables, to use in dishes like these. 

Leftovers

Here is how you can best store any leftovers:
Storing: You can store the soup in a refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat it before serving.
Freezing: Potato and carrot soup can also be frozen for up to 6 months. Place it in freezer safe containers, and freeze either in big batches or in portion sizes for easy future meals. Thaw and reheat before serving.
Reheating: This soup can be reheated in a few minutes in a microwave. Larger batches can also be reheated in a pot on the stove top.
Make ahead: As this soup stores and reheats really well, it’s perfect as an easy make ahead meal. Consider making a double batch and freeze the leftovers.
