Carrot, Celery & Potato Cream Soup

carrot soup

I have to share this soup recipe with you – it is my absolute new favorite. For this carrot, celery and potato cream soup you only need a few ingredients and it is really easy to make. I promise. I love making soups for lunch, because after breakfast I get busy with something and when lunchtime rolls around I don’t want to be in the kitchen cooking for hours and then cleaning up. With this soup recipe, you will be done cooking, eating, and cleaning in under 1 hour. You’re welcome 😉

I recommend getting an immersion blender so you don’t have to transfer your soup back and forth to a blender – just stick it in the soup and blend to however creamy you want your soup.

UPDATE: I now use a Thermomix® TM6 to cook all of my soups (I love this kitchen appliance so much I now sell them as a Thermomix® USA consultant!). I love that you can chop, sauté and purée the soups all in one bowl, and that you have access to over 60,000 recipes via wifi on the built-in touch screen display. So cool!! If you are interested in learning more, send me a message.

Have a great weekend! XoXo

p.s. I am getting married in 7 days!

    made this but instead of blending used the chopped veggies, instead of cream use can of cream o celery soup and cooked chicken drums with it and served them whole with the soup. wish me luck i think it might work

  2. Julia says:

    Made the recipe as written, but added 1/4c sour cream instead of half & half as that was what I had on hand, and added a splash of white balsamic vinegar to brighten everything up. Really good! Will make again. 🙂

    Just made this for lunch, my husband and I LOVED it. I didn’t have a lot of chicken broth (3/4 cup) so I just topped up with hot water and some leftover soup. I also didn’t have cream so I added a bit of skim milk. I am also sensitive to onion and garlic, so I used a bunch of chives and a splash of garlic infused olive oil instead.
    The soup was a delight :), i will definitely be making more in the future, who knew something so simple and healthy could be so filling!
    I also calculated the calories based on my tweaks of this recipe and it was around 902kcal, so each serving would be around 180kcal :).
    Thank you so much for the recipe, it is very delicious.

    I made this recipe to use up leftover mashed potatoes from Sunday’s dinner….what a great way to clean up the leftovers. It’s tasty, easy, and economical to make. Thanks for sharing.

    I just made this because I have to eat liquids due to stomach problem. Wow it is fabulous. I will be making this lots in the near future. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    I’ve made this soup many times now. Always a hit. Co-workers have liked it when I share. I add a clump of parsley, and usually use non-dairy milk at the end– coconut milk or some other sub. I use a hand stick blender which works nicely to make it a creamy consistency. Thanks!

      Half and half is sold in the milk section – it is basically half cream and half low fat milk so it is less fattening than heavy cream and thicker than regular milk 🙂

    Wow—this was an amazing soup! THANK YOU for sharing. I had a random assortment of potatoes, celery, and carrots hanging out at the bottom of my produce drawer that I didn’t know what to do with. I got searching for recipes online and found this one. I think this is going to be my new go-to soup! Even my husband (worlds pickiest eater) loved it and went back for seconds and thirds. Delicious!
    I added in some Thai chili for a kick, a few good shakes of grated Parmesan, and a small dash of cinnamon (which sounds weird but this secret ingredient works great for most cream based soups!)
    Thanks again!
