The Mighty Carrot

Carrot Basil Soup

Carrots are high in antioxidants, mainly the well known beta carotene. Beta carotene helps to keep the cardiovascular system strong as well as improving eye health and helpful in lowering cholesterol. High in fibre, vitamin A and C, they can help keep your immune system strong.

Enjoyed in so many different ways, carrots are easy to include in daily meal planning:

Juiced, pairs nicely with apple, ginger and beet.  Steamed or roasted. In baked goods for added fibre, who doesn't enjoy a good carrot cake! Soups and stews. As part of veggie trays for dipping instead of crackers. Blended for healthy baby food. Shredded into salads for a crunchy topping.

 

    Carrot Basil Soup

    6 tomatoes, roughly chopped
    3 carrots, chopped
    2 ribs of celery, chopped
    3 green onions, chopped
    2 tbsp olive oil
    2 cups water
    4 fresh basil leaves, julienned
    2 tbsp dried basil
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    1 tsp sea salt

    Heat olive oil in a soup pot, saute carrots and celery for about 7 minutes, until glazed and lightly browned.

    Add green onion and seasoning, quickly stir a few times and add tomatoes and water. Gently boil on medium heat until carrots are softened. Once cooked and allowed to cool, transfer to a blender or processor and blend to your liking.

    Serve with fresh basil.
