Important Points To Note:

  • Both red carrots and orange carrots can be used to prepare the soup. Although it is preferred to use red carrots to bring out the best flavours
  • Always use fresh and tender carrots to prepare the soup. Avoid using fibrous and hard carrots
  • Water can also be used instead of vegetable stock
  • You can include seasonings and spices of your choice to prepare the soup. But don’t overdo it with spices otherwise the soup will lose its actual flavour of carrot 
  • Leftover carrot soup can be refrigerated and then used the next day. Warm it well before serving and if it becomes thick, put some water and reheat it
