Carrot Soup Recipe

My Carrot Soup Recipe ("Mohrrübensuppe") will probably become one of your favorites. 

Carrot Soup

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. 

If you prefer, you can use fresh carrots. Peel, chop, and add. You'll need to cook it just a bit longer, though. Super supper! 

I like to make this different than the traditional bean soup recipe.

I do that by 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. If you wish, sauté the onions a bit too.

German Carrot Soup Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb meat, such as beef brisket (cut into spoon-sized chunks)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 lb bag frozen carrots 
  • 1-2 tbsp Vegeta Food Seasoning (see hints below)
  • 5 cups raw potatoes, (cut into spoon-sized chunks)
Instructions:
  • In large pot, put meat (or soup bones), onion, and frozen carrots.
  • Add potatoes and sufficient water to cover.
  • Add Food Seasoning.
  • Bring to boil. Reduce heat to simmer. Cover and cook for about 30 - 60 minutes, until meat is cooked. Cooking longer will improve the flavor.

A bit of this and a bit of that ...

  • Add celery seeds and parsley to taste.
  • Add freshly ground pepper.
  • The Vegeta Food Seasoning I use has salt and dried vegetables in it. If you don't have this, just add about 1 tsp. salt and some pepper to start. Adjust seasonings to taste.
  • Instead of using raw meat, add some sausage, kielbasa, or wieners. You will only need to cook the soup until the carrots are tender, about 10 - 15 minutes. 
  • If you like soup "brothy", just leave the way it is. However, if you like it thicker and (creamier), the easy way is to slowly add just enough Instant Mashed Potato flakes, stirring constantly, until the soup is as thick as you like.
  • Adding a grated raw potato in the beginning is another way to thicken the soup.
  • Slowly adding 1 - 2 tbsp cornstarch dissolved in a little cold water until the soup has thickened is another to make this Carrot Soup Recipe creamier.

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!"
