My daughter Dylan (age 5) is the light of my life. She is smart, funny, and very creative. I try to encourage her as much as I can. Last week, Dylan told me she had an idea for soup. She wanted to make a soup with carrots, potatoes, cheese, and a little parsley. We had the good fortune to be at Seattle's Pike Place Market over the weekend and bought all the yummy ingredients fresh. The soup was absolutely delicious so I just had to share! Here's her recipe. Of course you can use fresh onion, fresh garlic, etc. However, I really wanted to stay true to my daughter's vision. The soup was wonderful, so I'm glad that I resisted the temptation to add a few things here and there. Enjoy!

Directions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a pot over medium heat; cook and stir the potatoes and carrots in the hot oil until hot, about 10 minutes. Season with salt, garlic powder, and onion powder. Pour the chicken broth over the mixture; continue cooking until the potatoes and carrots are soft, 10 to 15 minutes more.
  2. Pour about half of the potato-and-carrot mixture into a blender. Hold the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Return the pureed soup to the pot. Stir the Cheddar cheese into the soup until melted. Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with parsley to serve.

Thanks, Dylan! I just enjoyed this delicious soup. I used a couple turns of garlic/sea salt and low-sodium chicken stock. I also boiled it longer than the called-for 15 minutes after adding the chicken stock, as I like mushy carrots. I'll definitely be making this again!

Sounds delicious, but I hate soups that I have to use a blender. I like more rustic versions.

Very good! Only change I made was using fresh onions and vegetable broth instead of chicken. Very good for lunch to supplement a sandwich. Note: I only give 5 stars if the recipe is fabulous, this is very good!
