Creamy potato-carrot soup

The last two days have been really windy and stormy here and both of us are fighting down a cold. So I thought nothing would be better as to have a hot and steamy soup. Also I wasn’t in the mood for much cooking today, so this recipe was quick and easy. Wishing you a nice day!!


- 5 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 4 medium carrots, cubed
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, chopped
- 4 cups vegetable broth
- 2 Tbsp. Olive oil
- 1 Tbsp. Butter
- 2 Tsp. Cumin powder
- 2 Tsp. Coriander powder
- Red chilli powder to taste
- ½ Tsp. Turmeric
- Salt to taste
- ½ cup half & half
- 2 Tbsp. chopped Italian parsley


Heat oil and butter in a large pot. Add onions and garlic. Fry for 2-3 minutes, then add potatoes and carrots. Fry for 2 more minutes, then add the vegetable broth. Let it come to a boil and add spice powders and salt. Let simmer till vegetables are soft. With a hand mixer blend to a creamy puree. Add the half & half and let simmer for 2 more minutes. Garnish with some parsley and serve.
