But vegetable broth makes it tastier.

Save cooking water

do you want more?

I advise you Save the cooking water from the carrots.

First, vegetable cooking water is a real treasure.

They are very useful for making soup or in the garden (unsalted).

Then, if you find the purée too thick, you can add a little more cooking water to thin it out.

Finally, if you have a few mashed carrots, add a little more cooking water.

And you have soup!

Suitable for preparing a quick and economical meal. It reduces food waste.

Simple recipe but so many possibilities!

As you can see, this recipe is very simple.

It is suitable for the whole family, including for baby from 4 months.

But you can adapt it to your taste.

You can add cumin, nutmeg, parsley, saffron and why not curry or ginger!

You can even add orange juice or a little honey.
