Sweet n spicy Carrot Soup

Sweet n Spicy Carrot Soup 

I love nothing more than a bowl of good stick to your ribs soup on a frosty night. This recipe gives the perfect blend of sweet and a kick of spice. Served up with some crusty tiger bread and I am in heaven. 

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 small leeks, sliced
  • 800g carrots, sliced
  • 2 tsp clear honey
  • dried chilli flakes, add depending to your taste
  • 2 Vegetable Stock Cubes made up in 2 pints of boiling water


Melt the butter in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the leeks to the pan, cook these off for 3 mins until soft. Now add the carrots, honey and chilli flakes then cook this off for a few minutes.

Pour in the stock, bring this to the boil and simmer for 30 mins. Now you will need your food processor or blender, pour into the mixer and blend the soup a bit at a time, return to a clean pan, then season to taste. 

And that is you, if you are preparing this in advance bring it back to the boil before serving.

Have you tried making soup before, what is your favourite? Let me know below!
