Cheesy Carrot Soup (Healthy Soup for Picky Eaters)

3 Apr

This healthy soup recipe was shared with me by a sister in our church who has six young children and this is their favorite soup. You know if that many young children like it, well it has to be good. I’ll have to try it out on my own four picky boys and post pics. later but here it is for now. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

2 cups Chicken broth
2 cups coarsely chopped carrots
2 cups cooked white beans
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 cup milk
salt, pepper, and/or herbs to taste
1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Bring broth to a boil in a sauce pan, add carrots, beans, and onion powder. Reduce heat and simmer until carrots are tender. Transfer hot mixture to blender carefully, add milk and puree until smooth. Add seasonings. Pour into serving bowls and top with cheese.

*To cook dry beans, use one cup of dry beans to get two cups cooked. Rinse them and cover with water in a pan on the stove. Heat to boiling and let it rapidly boil for 2 minutes. Then take it off the burner and put a lid on it. Let it sit for 3-4 hours. Then drain the water and put new water in and then heat to boiling; reduce heat and simmer until soft (about 1 hour). Make sure they don’t lose too much water or they will burn! — Submitted by Angi Danielson
