Morselicious Monday Mania & Huggable Carrot Soup

Lessons often come dressed up as detours and roadblocks


Holy Moly!  I’ve had more “lessons” than I’d like to count!


What have your detours/roadblocks/LESSONS taught you?

Please SHARE!! I LOOOOVE hearing from my favorite MORSELITES!

(OK, I’ll share, regardless) 🙂 and how ADORABLE is this photo?

Huggable Carrot Soup 

Serves 4

7 large carrots
1/4 cup olive/coconut or hemp oil
Juice of 1 lemon
6 cups vegetable stock (low sodium or make your own)
Ginger, an inch long, peeled (TIP: if you freeze, it’s easier to slice)
1  TBSP rosemary, plus more for garnish
4 green onions or 1/2 large sweet onion
2  garlic cloves, chopped
Black and red pepper to taste

1. Wash and cut the carrots into 1/2-inch rounds.

On a  baking sheet, toss the carrots with 1-2 tablespoons of the oil

and season with black and red pepper and fresh lemon juice.

Broil the carrots until browned and huggable or soft, turning them over

every 5 minutes or so; this should take approximately 15 minutes.

2. In the meantime, bring the stock to a boil, add ginger and rosemary and simmer  for 15 minutes.

3. Put the onion in a medium stock pot with the remaining oil.

Brown the onion over medium heat. Then add the garlic.

As soon as the aroma “hugs” your senses, add carrots.

4. Remove the ginger from the stock and add the stock to the pot with the onions and carrots.

Bring to boil and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, until the carrots are soft enough to blend.

5. Blend the mixture until a smooth puree. Add more stock or water to your liking.

Add pepper(s) to taste. Garnish with rosemary and a dollop of cashew cream

and hug your soup bowl for a cozy night in…

My goal is to reach 1000 fans on FACEBOOK by Christmas.
Will you please help?  THANK YOU!

  1. WHERE did you find those carrots??? So funny and cute! I promise to make that soup. You’ve influenced me to “return” to one of my old favorite vegetarian cookbooks, Laurel’s Kitchen. I used it so much that it fell apart yesterday when I was making the whole wheat pie crust for a tofu quiche.

  2. LOVED the carrot too! Sooo cute:)
    That’s right…no such thing as failure. I’ve learned that every time something
    goes wrong, or just doesn’t work out, it brings me that much closer to everything that’s right!
    P.S. Can I put that PHD on my resume? Haha

  3. Carrots hugging…adorable. Can’t wait to make the soup!
    No such thing as failure…only feedback! We owe our AWESOME selves mostly in part to our feedback. Stay safe & dry!
