You are in for such a treat with my 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!
