By now we all know I am OBSESSED with Black Carrots and this Roasted Black Carrot Soup with Feta & Almonds is my latest love. Easy to make, super delicious and oh so nutritious.
If you follow me on Instagram, you know I have been obsessing over Black Carrots. I made a friend lug me some from Delhi & I have been cooking and baking with them like crazy. The carrots are almost over now and this Roasted Black Carrot Soup with Feta & Almonds is the last thing I made with them.
If you are wondering what exactly are black carrots, I wrote a piece for Goya Journal on them. The article also has the recipe of my favourite probiotic drink in the whole world – Kaanji. These little gems that come for a very short time every year, are my favourite kinds of carrots honestly. I don’t even get them in Bangalore very easily but I make sure I get my hands on some every year.
They have a beautiful earthy flavour that I can’t get enough of. They are also perfect in salads and stir-fries. Apart from the flavour, they add a fantastic colour to the dish as well. I recently made a kickass black carrot cake with them this time. And also used the puree in a black carrot sourdough bread.
But probably the best thing to come out of my kitchen with these black carrots this year was this soup. Roasted Black Carrot Soup with a crunch of toasted almonds, a generous helping of feta, topped with some microgreens and served with a slice of bread. Perfect healthy dinner option.
If you make this, share a picture with me on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook? I would love to hear what you have to say about it. And if you are looking for something sweet to make with Black Carrots, try this Black Carrot Halwa.
