Carrot Soup with Roasted Apples Recipe

I had this with lunch today – I wanted some comfort food.

Carrot Soup with Roasted Apples Recipe 

Ingredients (serves 2-3)

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, plus some to sprinkle on the apples
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus some to taste
  • 3 medium carrots, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1/2 apple, finely chopped


  1. Spread the apple out on a baking pan and sprinkle with cinnamon. Broil for 7-8 minutes. I did this in the toaster oven – very easy.
  2. Heat the butter in a pan over high heat, then saute the onions with the cumin, cinnamon, and salt for about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the carrots and the thyme; saute for 3-4 more minutes.
  4. Add the water and mustard and reduce heat to low; let simmer for 3-4 more minutes.
  5. Blend the carrot mix in a blender – add water if you’d like the soup to be thinner.
  6. Reheat the soup and mix in the roasted apples; feel free to sprinkle some more cinnamon and salt to taste!
