Seven soups every Saturday: carrot soup recipes

Seven Lipton soup bowls 

I'm not a raw food fanatic, but there are some foods I love in their raw state that I don't love when cooked or processed in any way. Berries, cherries, nuts and carrots all fall into that category. However, just because I don't love most carrot soups doesn't mean that you shouldn't love them. Carrots are off-the-chart full of vitamins, budget-friendly, and available year-round. Cooking releases their natural sweetness. And for soup you can use carrots that are a bit less than perky. If you buy your carrots at the farmer's market, trim off and save the leafy tops for soup stock.

Seven carrot soup recipes caught my eye this week:

Sunchoke carrot soup, from Anne's Food

Spicy carrot peanut soup, from Eggs on Sunday

Curried carrot soup with pan-toasted cornbread croutons, from Gluten-Free Goddess

Indonesian carrot soup, from Food Blogga

Carrot soup with orange and tarragon, from Food, and Other Musings

Mint carrot soup, from Chocolate & Zucchini

Coconut carrot soup, from Healthy Green Kitchen

Find more delicious carrot soup recipes with Food Blog Search. Come back every Saturday for seven soup recipes to enjoy any day of the week.


You've seen these soup mugs before, but I love the colors and thought about how pretty they'd look filled with bright orange carrot soups. The mugs, manufactured by McKee Glasbake, were a promotion for Lipton Soup in the 1960s. You can find them on Etsy or eBay, and sometimes at yard sales. I have 40 of these mugs, in all seven colors.

If you'd like to share photos of seven soup bowls from your kitchen -- or from a friend's house, or your parents' attic, or an antique shop, or a housewares store, or a school or restaurant -- I'd love to share those photos on Saturdays.

It's easy: send one photo, of seven soup bowls. The bowls must all be able to be used for eating soup (no mixing bowls or troughs, please), and they absolutely do not have to match. Send the largest file your camera will allow; I'll size it to fit. Make sure the photo is in focus (very important). Tell me whose bowls are in the photo, or where you took the picture. If you're a blogger, I'll link to your blog.

That's it. One photo, seven soup bowls. Email to lydia AT ninecooks DOT com.
