A Carrot Pea Soup Recipe For Your Family

carrot pea soups

Although I didn’t grow up with my family eating carrot pea soup, I can honestly say that it is one of the tastiest soups I’ve ever had. It has a nutty and slightly sweet flavor, but is also very smooth. There are carrot pea soup recipe variations, but the one I like best is made using carrots that have been steamed and then simmered with chicken stock, apple cider vinegar, and celery. In addition, carrots should be cooked until they are soft.

Recipe For The Soup

The first time I ever made a carrot pea soup, I thought that was the way it was always done. Of course, I’ve since been exposed to many different versions of the classic soup and my tastes have changed tremendously. The original recipe called for half a cup of vegetable stock; a quarter pound of carrots; three cups of water; and no salt.

There are lots of recipes online for carrot pea soup. I like a classic version that uses a combination of carrots, zucchini, and potato. This one calls for russet potatoes, but if you don’t have them, be sure to use either onions or garlic to make up for it. Bring a pot of water to a boil and throw in your carrots and zucchini. Drain off both the water and the potatoes and set aside. Put the meat into a large pan and bring to a boil.

Reduce the heat as needed and add the carrots and zucchini. Add enough water so they are fully submerged but not submerge them too much. Cover for about an hour and then remove from heat. Or you can bake the carrots, drain off their liquid, and then use a shredder to shred them. If you want to add flavorings to the cooked meat, then you can add this right at the beginning of cooking.

At this point, you can add a variety of things to your carrot pea recipe. I usually add some carrots, some cherry tomatoes, and some basil. You can also add celery and parsley, but try to stay away from cilantro. If you want to add a little bit of sweetness, then you can add a sliced zucchini and maybe a bit of squash too. It is really up to you which ones you want to add.

When the ingredients are just about ready to add into the pot, add a little bit of olive oil to the mix. This will help the zucchini stick to the meat. Then add carrot pea soup mix to the top and gently swirl to combine. Then gently simmer the mixture for about 20 minutes or so.

Time To Enjoy Your Soup

Now it’s time to serve and enjoy. You can add any type of dip that you like to the soup. The most common ones include: hot dogs, cream cheese, sour cream, and barbecue sauce. The more spice you put into your recipes, the more it will taste. If you like it hot, you might want to add a bit of jalapeno sauce or even chunks of red pepper. Just remember to keep a bit of each spice on hand for dipping.


My dad loved carrot pea soup and loved it so much that whenever we went out of town, he would bring it with him and we could all enjoy it. If you have never tried carrot pea soup, you should really give it a shot. I know that when I was in the hospital, I needed something comforting to calm me down. It was the perfect thing because it had all of the natural ingredients that I needed to feel good. Plus, it was so easy to make!
