Whether you love carrots or you think they’re for rabbits, you’re going to love this soup.
It’s the perfect blend of creamy, savory and sweet.
The peanuts, lime and cilantro are all great ways to bring a little extra to this soup. It also gives your kids and other pickier eaters a little way to make it their own and be involved in the process.
Blending up veggies into a soup is also a great way to get lots of nutrient dense foods into a meal.
