Creamy Carrot Soup

This soup is so easy to make and tastes great, too. The recipes only makes a couple of servings, which can also be a bonus.

I did a class this morning on cooking for one or two. If you have a smaller household, making a huge pot of soup can be a problem. I love homemade soup, but after a few days even the best soup can get boring. This recipe makes about 3 cups of soup, just enough for a couple of servings.

There are only a few ingredients: carrots, onion, stock, milk, nutmeg and green onions. Plus salt and pepper, to taste. I like to add a little hot sauce, too. You could add some fresh herbs, if you like. I sometimes add curry powder.

Start to finish the soup takes about 20 minutes to make, so nice when you are pressed for time.
