Roasted carrot soup | La tarte maison

I fell into the cliché of the kitchen at the beginning of the year, what can you do?

I'm starting to publish my recipes again after the Christmas break, which lasted a little longer for me, and I'm starting again from a light recipe but which is first of all delicious and satisfying.
Oven roasted carrots and spring onions along with some spices, which are then passed through a food mill to become a super tasty cream. What I always repeat in these pages is that the recipes I publish are really those designed for home, and since after the holidays there was a fair desire for light foods, nothing better than a vegetable cream. But clearly not the usual past, because at the same time we are looking for inspiration for the blog, and here is the roasted carrot cream soup ready for us.

I had already made something similar, one carrot and almond creamand what's more I had always prepared it at this time of year demonstrating that detox goes hand in hand with carrots for me, a vegetable that I am greedy for, so much so that I once had indigestion but despite this I have never gotten bored of it. In short, I love raw carrots, whether cooked, roasted, boiled or braised, even more so because when cooked, beta-carotene, for which they are so famous, is more bioavailable, even more so if seasoned with extra virgin olive oil. (Bressanini docet).

And even if I fell into the banality of a recipe that is to all intents and purposes “light”, I don't mind, think of it as you like but this velvety soup deserved its space, right now when the desire to stay light takes over the festive binges.
