With all the holiday parties, sweet treats & stunning cocktails, its time for something healthy. Don’t you think? This Carrot Leek Soup is a warming bowl of comfort and health!

The nice thing about soup is it’s quick & simple to make. Serve with a hearty slice of cheese or some other protein and you have a full meal!

I’m working with Grimmway Farms to share their sweet baby carrots with you. We love to eat them out of hand and to use them in recipes. They have a number of great products to check out.

I roasted the carrots and leeks with olive oil & garlic salt first to bring out all their fabulous flavors.

I’m so in love with the flavor & vibrant color of this soup!

Of course I topped this recipe with crispy bacon & goat cheese.

Just so you know…baby carrots are full-grown, young premium carrots that are cut, peeled and packaged to make eating carrots easy, portable and enjoyable for the whole family.

Carrots are a nutrition powerhouse, providing over 15 essential vitamins and minerals along with phytonutrients and fiber that are important for good health. Cool huh!

    Oooh Mar! !! This sounds awesome…but….I wouldnt use garlic salt….I would go do the real garlic which I have planted in my garden….and salt to taste…..im really not a salt person but you do need some….thx for the great recipe….I might even try this with squash!!! And the leeks….alot milder onions taste than an actual onion….

    I made this for dinner tonight and it was so tasty! I don’t normally care for cooked carrots, but in a smooth soup, they were sweet and very good. I added a red pepper when I roasted the carrots and leek. This recipe is a definite keeper, and I especially loved the fact that a giant 2-cup serving was only 141 calories!!

      Thats a great idea to add the red pepper! Must try over here as well 🙂

    […] My beauty garden is going strong and the carrots and leeks I’ve been growing are ready to harvest. I’ve been trying to think of creative recipes using carrots besides just side dishes, and that’s how I happened upon an idea for roasted carrots and leek soup. As you know, carrots are the ultimate “beauty food,” chock full of Vitamin A. But leeks get honorable mention, too. They have a respectable amount of sulfur, which contributed to healthy hair growth.  I Googled and found a great recipe which really brings out the natural sweetness of the carrots and round it out with the mellow, savory leeks. What’s more, this soup, coupled with cheese (I used feta) and bacon, gives you a complete meal comprised of both veggies and protein. Check out the recipe here. […]
