Roasted Carrot Soup

My kids’ just love munching fresh carrots, and carrot juice is one of their favorite drinks. However, they just dislike eating any cooked carrots, period. So, when I wanted to make this delicious roasted carrot soup, I honestly thought I’d end up having it all myself. The soup was so delicious and savory, they finished it all instead! Success at last, got them to eat some form of cooked carrots I guess! ☺

Arrange the carrots, onions, sweet potato and garlic in a baking tray. Mix in the olive oil and sprinkle some sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Roast the carrot mixtures for about 45 minutes to an hour. Remove the carrot mixtures from the oven. Peel the skin from the garlic.

Mix in the carrot mixtures into a large saucepan. Add the chicken stock, ground ginger, nutmeg and bring it to a boil and lower the heat and simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes. Allow the mixture to cool slightly, and then puree the mixture.

Return the soup to saucepan and simmer over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Stir and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper.


  1. Oh man I can just taste this. My taste buds are twitching.

  2. Now I know how to use up all those summer garden carrots! :)

  3. Hey, just wanted to say I just tried your recipe and it was delicious. I had a lot of baby carrots, but no sweet potato...and stirred in a couple of tablespoons of heavy cream at the end. My roommate wanted to add some crispy pancetta, sour cream and chives, we resisted!

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
