Cooking carrot soup:
Step 1: chop the vegetables.Dice all the vegetables. It is better if they are about the same size, so everything is cooked evenly and the taste of the dish will turn out better. And most importantly, you do not digest vegetables and save more vitamin. But do not grind too vegetables. The optimal size is 2 * 2 cm cubes.
Step 2: fry the vegetables.Melt the butter in a well-heated pan and pour the vegetables into it. Mix well and fry for 3-4 minutes over medium heat. Just do not let the oil burn. Vegetables should warm up well, become a little soft on the outside, but remain hard inside. For flavor, put a sprig of thyme on top.
Step 3: add the broth.When the vegetables are half ready, fill them with broth. It can be hot or cold, it does not matter. Suitable as a vegetable broth, and meat. It all depends on your taste preferences. The meat broth will make the soup more satisfying, and the taste rich. Vegetable broth is more suitable for those who are on a diet and monitor the number of calories. We bring everything to a boil and reduce the temperature to a minimum. We wait 15-20 minutes until the vegetables are cooked.
Step 4: pour the cream.Pour the cream into the soup when the vegetables are ready. So you keep the rich vegetable taste and do not interrupt it. And cream will give only a light creamy shade.
Step 5: grind everything with a blender and beat.Grind the entire contents of the pan with a blender to a puree state. The mass is airy and tender.
Step 6: serve carrot soup.Served carrot soup in portions, with croutons or bread rolls. Do not rush to serve it immediately after cooking. Let the soup stand for 10 minutes. During this time, its taste will become even better. Enjoy your meal!
