Great appetizer or great dinner!
Carrot Apple Soup is a flavorful fruit and vegetable blend perfect for fall or winter. Sweet and savory spices compliment the carrots and apples to create a velvety, sweet, yet spicy entree. This soup makes a great appetizer, but most often we serve it as our dinner meal along with a salad. The warm soup feels good as the weather cools down. And although the flavor combo is a bit unusual, we love it!
How to make carrot apple soup
A creamy soup, carrot apple soup is one of the best fall soup recipes; it's also a healthy winter soup. To make this easy and oh-so-quick soup, simply cut carrots into chunks and cook them with butter and chicken broth. Add sliced apples and when tender, let cool a bit. You can use a stick blender right in your pot, or pour the soup in a blender and puree. Return to pot. Stir in additional broth, fat free half and half, nutmeg, and seasoning. It's just that easy!
Which nutrients are in this soup?
The dense orange color is reminiscent of pumpkin. And much like a pumpkin dish, this soup offers a nutritional lineup of vitamin K, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and especially vitamin A. You can make it vegetarian by just exchanging the chicken broth for vegetable broth.
Creamy soup but still non fat soup
The soup is smooth and creamy. It's like a cream of carrot soup with the extra flavor of apples, but without a high fat content. We like it topped with chopped green onions and/or swirls of the fat-free half and half. Croutons or bacon bits would also be delicious additions to the soup. Try it with our recipe for brown sugar muffins for a delicious meal!
