The Saturday Simmer: Carrot soup recipes

Roasted carrot soup, from Use Real Butter.

One of the best things about blogging, for me, has been accepting the challenge of learning to love foods I do not naturally love. I've mastered broccoli and kale, though I haven't done too well with cauliflower or chickpeas. Carrots -- cooked carrots -- have never been high on my list, though I can munch on raw carrots all day, but I've discovered that when carrots melt into soup, like this roasted carrot soup from Use Real Butter, I love them. Love, with a capital L. Full of good-for-your-eyes Vitamin A, carrots are available and inexpensive at any time of year.

These carrot soup recipes caught my eye, and all would be welcome on the holiday table:

Carrot soup with tahini and crisped chickpeas, from Smitten Kitchen

Carrot ginger soup, from Simply Recipes

Carrot-thyme soup with cream, from The Pioneer Woman Cooks

Moroccan-spiced carrot and sorghum soup, from The Kitchn

Chinese daikon and carrot soup, from Steamy Kitchen

Curried apple, potato and carrot soup, from Inspired Taste

Roasted carrot soup, from Use Real Butter

Spinach, potato, dill and carrot soup, from My Colombian Recipes

Squash, sweet potato and carrot soup, from The Perfect Pantry

Which will you try first? What intrigues you? Please leave feedback on the original recipe post, and let us know if you've made or adapted any of these recipes. See you next Saturday, and every Saturday, with more soups, stews and chili.

I was just looking for a recipe for a certain cauliflower soup and found this comment on a blog post you made: "You might be delighted with the cauliflower and cilantro soup recipe that Sally Sampson has in one of her books,it might be in "Recipes From the Night Kitchen". It turns into a flavor delicious and unrecognizable as cauliflower. Good gateway cauliflower recipe." This commenter said exactly what I was thinking, it's a delightful soup that tastes of neither cauliflower nor cilantro. If you ever happen onto a bunch of the green (side note: after reading Jeffrey Steingarten's book The Man Who Ate Everything-fantastic book, I sought to "cure" my cilantro-hating ways and fully suceeded.)stuff, try that soup out. Delicious. Hahaha, "good gateway cauliflower recipe."
