Cinnamon Carrot Soup

Cinnamon Carrot Soup

Although it’s still cold, it definitely feels less harsh than last week (and the week before that).
The severe and unusually long cold blast we just experienced was one the sharpest documented — numerous records (if not all) have been broken.
And when it gets cold (especially that cold), I have but one craving: warming and nourishing soups. There’s nothing quite like a big bowl of soup to keep your insides warm and healthy.


And then there’s me and my love for carrot soup. I probably like carrot soup too much. As a matter of fact I don’t know anyone else who likes carrot soup as much as I do. If you happen to know people who cheer when they hear that there’s going to be carrot soup for dinner, please introduce them to me. I need to feel less alone in this “carrot soup love” world.

Cinnamon Carrot Soup

Anyways, though I already have three recipes for carrot soup on this blog (vegan, turmeric, and pumpkin-carrot) I feel there was room for one more.
Enters this Cinnamon Carrot Soup.
Spicy, a little sweet, and warming to the whole body, this soup recipe is perfect for cooler weather.
Truth to be told I hadn’t meant for this soup to be so quintessentially early January — that would be dairy-free, gluten-free, almost fat-free, paleo, vegetarian (and veganizable), and the very picture of healthful do-gooding. But since New Year’s resolutions are still fresh and motivating and a clean slate is ahead of us filled with potential and promise, this Cinnamon Carrot Soup is just what we all need.
Simple, quick, creamy smooth, and teaming with good-for-you ingredients. Healthy food at its best!

Return the soup to the heat, add remaining tablespoon of butter, and stir to combine.
Divide soup among serving bowls and top with caramelized shallots and chopped parsley.
