Simple Creamy Carrot Soup recipe

One of my favorite cafe’s to eat at is called Le Pain Quotidien, is this adorable French cafe with a killer menu. I would say one of my favorite things to order is their perfect carrot soup. It is creamy and perfectly seasoned.

I came home one afternoon determined to re-create their carrot soup. I am happy to say it is delicious and pretty darn good for you!

If you haven’t had carrot soup before, you must try it. It really is dreamy 🙂

Hope you enjoy friends!Simple Creamy Carrot Soup

    Just made this for my adult son who is sick! Left out the bacon but added in 2 potatoes, some ginger, and curry. It’s delish! Managed to save some for myself as well. Nom, nom, nom…

    I just made this today, with some adjustments for what I had on hand. I used vegetable broth instead of chicken broth, and dried herbs and onions instead of fresh. I also didn’t have bacon. Yet it turned out GREAT, so I can only imagine how awesome it must be with the broth, bacon, and fresh accents. MMM…so glad I found this recipe! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We had this for dinner tonight, though I forgot the bacon. It was delicious! My two year old asked for seconds!

    This soup looks delicious. I would never think to make carrot soup, but I will definitely try this. I love that it’s healthy (except for the bacon). Yum!

    Looks Delish!~ I love carrot soup. Blender stick works great too instead of the blender, although you have a gorgeous blender!~

    I have recently discovered organic carrots. I’ve always liked carrots, but now i love them! I think I’ll have to give this a try..thanks for this wonderful recipe! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Dumb question: What happens to the bacon strips? Are they just there to flavor the soup and then you remove them or do 2 people get the joy of having a slice of bacon in their bowl? (I’m assuming you don’t cut the strips up.) Thanks for answering me. ๐Ÿ˜€

  14. MikeVFMK

    Love my soup and carrot soup looks just as amazing as it must taste. Love seeing the savoury recipes on here, especially when they’re as gorgeous as this! Yay

  15. Sally @ Spontaneous Hausfrau

    I’ve never done bacon in carrot soup and I’m thinking I need to start. I love Le Pain Quotodien, too. Their tuna and hummus tartine is so. darn. good.

  16. Jessica

    Gorgeous photos Jenny! And I love that there is no actual cream to make this creamy soup! ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Hannah

    Recipe looks great, I’m the only carrot lover in my family, how could I make a single serving if this just for me? How many carrots? And other ingredients? Like measurements?

  18. Living The Sweet Life

    I adore carrot soup, it’s so hearty and comforting!! That little tid bit at the end with the bacon – – never tried that, but it’s a fantastic idea ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga

    Jenny this sounds so good and your photos in this post are truly stunning. The napkin with the fringe is PERFECT for the scene and it’s like those antique spoons with the orange in them were made for this soup. Truly gorgeous..both the photos and the recipe.
