Vegan Carrot & Apple Soup

When the cooler weather hits I love making big batches of soup. There are so many ways to make soup from vegetable-based to chicken noodle, or hearty stews. They are warming, healthy and great for meal prep especially during the cooler months when you want to just stay in and hibernate (or is that just me?! LOL!)

Got Soup?!

You can find several soup recipes on my blog from Creamy Vegan Butternut Squash, Healing Crockpot Vegetable Soup, or Pasta Fagioli Soup. These recipes are a great way to get in those extra veggies and healing properties. Especially at a time of the year when our bodies need it the most. The chicken broth alone has healing properties from iron, zinc, collagen, vitamins A&K and helps fight inflammation in the body.

Read The Ingredients!

Since this is a vegan recipe we are using vegetable broth here which still contains trace amounts of vitamins. My main concern with broths is the sodium count. Please be mindful when choosing your broth. Look for the sodium count to be 140mg or LESS per serving. Read the ingredients and make sure there are no fillers or preservatives in them either. We want to nourish our bodies not hurt them!

Onto The Soup!

Since this is a carrot soup let’s start with the 1lb of carrots peeled and diced along with 3 peeled and chopped apples. I chose Fuji but any apple that you like will work, try to stick with a tart one to balance the flavors. Not a lot of seasoning is needed here besides salt and pepper and I am thinking now that a little toasted fresh rosemary to top it might work!

What I like to call my secret ingredient is the coconut milk (from a can) that gives this soup it’s creamy finish (and keeps it vegan) Feel free to swirl in more at each bowlful as I like to do. This recipe is great for meal prep as it can keep in the fridge for a few days or freeze a batch for those snow days when you are homebound. Brrr…..
