Today’s recipe for Roasted Carrot Soup comes from one of the most important people in my life. She helped me raid our grammy’s closets to play dress-up when we were little, was the first person with whom I ordered a whole bottle of wine at a fancy restaurant, and she stood up beside me at my wedding. She cooks more recipes from my blog than anyone I know, and, as this ultra creamy and healthy Roasted Carrot Soup recipe will testify, she has a keen sense of what I like to eat for lunch.
This lady in my life is my sister Elizabeth. Despite a striking resemblance, we are not twins, though we can’t go anywhere in public without complete strangers asking if we are.
P.S. I’m the one on the left in the above linked picture. Don’t worry—you are not the only person who wondered.
I’m currently in Kansas City visiting my sis and her brand-new baby girl (and my new baby niece!) Caroline. My sister also has a 2-year-old daughter, and I have another sister in Kansas City (hi, Elaine!), so between the three of us and the little ladies, it’s quite the girly fest around here.
I plan to cook my sister a variety of freezer meals while I’m in town, including today’s healthy carrot soup. Elizabeth is an expert meal planner and selected most of the recipes we are making, but this easy carrot soup is one that I added to our list. It’s the best carrot soup recipe I’ve ever tried, and I know my sister loves it, since she is the person who first shared the recipe with me.
