Carrot and Lemon Soup

Yummy, healthy and easy.


Olive oil – 2 tsp

Onion – 1 (Chopped)

Carrots – 8-10, (washed, peeled and grated)

Vegetable Stock – 3 cups

Lemon juice and rind – from 1 lemon




Walnuts – Toasted and crushed – 2 tsps

Kaffir Lime leaves – 4 (chiffonade)



Heat olive oil in a stockpot, add onions and sauté till pink. Add carrots and cook till carrots are cooked. Add the vegetable stock, lemon juice, lemon rind, salt and pepper and simmer for 20-25 mins. Remove from heat and allow it to cool.

Purée in the blender till smooth, strain and heat.

Garnish and serve hot.


I chose not to strain it, instead I made it a bit thinner with a little low fat milk.
