Carrot and Apple Soup with Chermoula

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

Perfect weather and month for starting, preparing and enjoying hearty and flavourful soup , for me and my family soup season has arrived ! It's pleasant time when I just take few simple ingredients and turn them into a healthy and satisfying meal. Sometime simplicity is best !

Earthy carrot and apple soup, seasoned with the deep warming flavours from North Africa , soup topped with Chermoula. With flavourful and spicy Chermoula soup turned out so delicious !!

You will need :-
  • 10-12 medium carrots scrubbed and diced
  • 1 medium apple roughly chopped
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4-5 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2-3 bay leaves
  • Salt to taste
  • 500 ml vegetable stock
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper powder
  • 3-4 tbsp. Chermoula ( Recipe here )
  • 1 tbsp. cream fraiche or sour cream ( optional )

Method :-
Heat oil in a pan ( I used pressure cooker ) add cumin seeds, garlic and onion.
Sauté till light brown.
Add carrots, apple along with bay leaves, stock, pepper powder and salt.
Bring it to boil, cover and simmer about 30-35 minutes or till carrots are well cooked ( I cooked mine till 3 whistle )
Let it cool slightly.
Blend with hand blender until smooth.
Put back on the stove and heat it again.
Serve with cream and drizzle of Chermoula.
Enjoy with crusty bread.

Happy Cooking :)
