Add-ons and variations?

This recipe is simple to modify. With a few additions, you can make it a full meal and call it dinner!

Mix vegetables, mushrooms, sliced butternut squash, parsnips, and green beans. Combine them with the potatoes.

More leafy greens! Fresh baby spinach, kale, and chopped collard greens would make excellent additions. Add them in the last few minutes of cooking time.

Plant-based protein: Feel free to add a can of white beans for added protein, but any canned chickpeas or lentils will work well here. Make sure to drain them first before adding them to the vegetables. If you use frozen peas, add them at the end and cook for a few minutes.

Grains: Grains include pearled oats, rice, and broken pasta. I recommend cooking your favorite grains separately according to package instructions, especially if they take a long time to cook.

Cheese: Before serving, mix in a teaspoon of butter or some chopped cheddar or mozzarella cheese to enhance thickness and flavor.

Onion and garlic: Sautéed onions in butter or olive oil are a requirement. However, using too much garlic will dominate the buttery flavor and sweetness of the onion.

Butter or olive oil: This is one of the rare recipes where I use butter rather than olive oil. I adore how the sweet, creamy flavor enhances the potatoes and herbs. You can use olive oil to make it vegan; it works well.

Celery: It provides flavor and texture. You can add extra celery if desired.

Broth: I use chicken broth in this recipe, but any low-sodium vegetable broth can be used.

Herbs: I used Italian herb spices, dried thyme leaves, and celery. Fresh celery with its fresh herbal taste is an addition here.

Salt and black pepper: The amount of salt and pepper you use depends on your broth. Add a pinch of salt at the start, then tweak the seasoning to the end over the flavor bursts.

Note: If you add more ingredients, adjust the chicken broth and salt amount to achieve the ideal consistency and taste.

In conclusion, potato carrot soup can be easily prepared with any fruit, grain, or beans you have on hand. Weeknight dinners are also made easier with this healthy soup. You may combine the best ingredients in the blender: smooth carrot soup with crispy vegetable pieces.

YUM. You can make it constantly once you experience how delicious and simple it is!
