This Carrot Soup Recipe ("Mohrrübensuppe") will probably be among your favorites. It's not the regular creamy style, but it's chunky. It gives you the feeling you're actually eating something.
Filling and nutritious, with chunks of meat, it's a great traditional German meal. Make this soup like the Green Bean Soup but exchange a bag of frozen carrots for the bag of green beans.
Made quickly using frozen carrots, but fresh carrots are fantastic. Peel, chop, and add. Super supper!
Check out Oma's new eBook. Quick Fix Soups, 84 full-color pages filled with step-by-step instructions and hints.
Recipe cards are included. All the help you need to make traditional German soups quickly and easily.
You can turn the above Carrot Soup into different vegetable soup recipes by using different vegetables - half carrot, half potato, or half carrot, half green bean, etc. Each one different, yet each delicious. When someone asks you for the recipe because it's so-o-o good, just say, "I take a bit of this, and a bit of that!"
I like to make this different than the traditional bean soup recipe, using raw meat such as beef brisket, meaty soup bones, or a small roast. The size of the meat and/or bones will affect the cooking time. If you want extra flavor, and don't mind a bit of extra work, brown meat first in a bit of oil.

Here's what some of my fans say:
Joy B: Our family always used white vinegar instead of lemon juice, and added paprika ... but I think I'd like this version better!
Alice D: Every time I make these I always have to make 3 times as much! Our friends always want some so it never goes to waste.
