Carrot and Sweet Potato Soup

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Started the day at Orange Theory fitness and ending with this Carrot and Sweet Potato soup. Maybe orange is my color after all. 😉

Also, using a crockpot makes me feel so adult… Never in my life had I dreamt about putting food into a cooker and so many hours later the food being ready to eat. Now I want everything and everything crockpot approved. #adulting

Ingredients: (Serves 5, Calories 98 per 1 cup, Carbs 19g, Protein 4g, Fat 1g)

  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled, and chopped
  • 4 cups chopped carrots
  • 1 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 2 cups low sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup The New Barn unsweetened almond milk

Directions:

  • Place all ingredients, excluding almond milk, into a crockpot and cook for 6 hours.
  • Once done cooking, add almond milk and blend with an immersion blender.
  • Top with ricotta cheese (almond ricotta VERY recommended.)

Cheers!
