It’s getting cooler here in Seattle and the sky is mostly grey and once in a while the sun peeks out from the clouds for a short time. With the days shorter and nights cooler I can only think of a bowl of warm soup. Since its October and fall is at its peak the first ingredient that came to my mind was apples.
I love those red juicy apples in this season because they are the best right now and when I blended the apples in a spiced carrot soup it was mind blowing. If you remember my spicy carrot amaranth soup and apple pumpkin soup with caramelized onions, the spice ingredients in them and the aroma of those soups……this Spiced Apple Carrot Soup reminds me of them. Oregano, basil, cinnamon, nutmeg and coconut create an incredibly soothing flavor and to spice this broth up a bit sprinkle cayenne pepper. I added diced apples and julienned carrots to make this soup wholesome and a typical fall recipe. I blended it smooth and warmed it up just before serving.
It was comforting to indulge into this soup after a long tiring day, snuggling inside the blanket, house smelling of spiced candles and watching our favorite show, it was a perfect weeknight. A bowl of Spiced Apple Carrot Soup satisfied our tummies and brought so much deliciousness to our home.
It’s definitely possible to have fun with food on weeknights too and especially if it’s healthy it’s a bonus and I love the fact that healthy meals can be prepared in less than 30 minutes with minimum stress.
