Take two carrots fresh from the ground, or out of the bag in the fridge if you've bought them from a shop ...
... wash them, chop them, add them to a chopped stick of celery and a chopped onion. Sprinkle over a teaspoon of Ground Cumin and a drizzle of Olive Oil and roast in the oven for 30 minutes.
Once roasted tip into a big pan add a teaspoon or two of Bouillon powder and enough water to more than cover, bring to the boil and then simmer for 20 - 30 minutes until everything is very soft. Then whizz with a stick blender until you get to the consistency you like. Taste and season ... I found it needed some black pepper but no salt as the roasting of the vegetables brings out LOTS of flavour.
Serve your simple homemade soup with a thick slice of toasted homemade bread - enjoy.
A tip from me - don't buy the carrots with the green carrot tops on from the supermarket ... the tops leach the moisture from the carrots and make them go off quicker than the washed bagged kind you can buy for half the price!! You are paying for something that looks nice and rustic, they are no better for you!!
