Lauki Carrot Soup

When we think about soups the most common soups that come to mind are tomato soup, hot and sour soup. But when you have some vegetables like lauki at home and you are craving for some piping hot soup, try this lauki carrot soup. The almonds and potatoes added to this soup add richness and thickness.
Hot soup going down your throat accompanied with some fresh garlic bread, that should set your evening. Lauki carrot soup is best suited for a quick dinner and then you can get by your chores and activities. Lauki carrot soup is easy to make and a really nice recipe for weight watchers and healthy eaters. Of course do cut down the butter used in the recipe and don’t add any cream.

 Lauki carrot soup can also be made vegan, skip butter and add olive oil instead. Obviously you should skip the cream too if you want it to be vegan. I have used fresh flat leaf parsley here, but coriander will work just fine. Try more soups from FOI, potato corn chowder, spinach soup, butternut squash soup etc. Try more lauki recipes from FOI.
