Homemade Carrot Soup


I have one word to describe this soup.  Amazing.  It's beyond delicious and incredibly healthy.  Did I mention that it has NO dairy or cream in it?  The main ingredients are celery and carrots.  That's it.  If you're looking for a good summer soup that's easy to make, then you need to try this one.  Trust me, your stomach will thank you.

 Ingredients:
2 pounds of whole carrots
1 onion chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
4 celery stalks
Salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
1 tsp curry powder (optional...I didn't use any)
About 4 1/2 cups of water, chicken or vegetable broth
If using water, add chicken soup powder for flavor (I used the chicken broth packets from Trader Joe's)

Directions:
Peel and cut carrots
Cut celery
 Heat olive oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat and sauté onion for about 3-4 minutes
Add carrots and celery and sauté for about 5 minutes
Add enough water or broth to cover carrot/celery mixture with about 1/2 inch extra 
Season with salt and pepper
Cook covered over medium-low heat for about 30 minutes or until carrots are soft
Transfer to a blender in batches and puree until smooth
Serve hot or cold
Enjoy!
