Last Sunday I was thinking of preparing carrot soup; but I was a bit bored of having same old traditional carrot soup. I thought of giving a little twist to the traditional soup. I thought of roasting carrots instead of boiling it. Roasting any vegetable will give you a smoky flavour; Also, roasting brings out their natural taste and it helps preserve their nutrient content. This is a creamy, filling and tasty soup and very simple to make. Yes, roasting will take some time, but I promise you that the outcome will be delicious.
