Vegan Creamy Carrot Fennel Soup

My favourite soup has to be the pureed variety. In fact I’ve been known to blend regular soups that many would feel should not be blended, including this weeks Immune-zing soup.

Soup just tastes better to me when it’s been blended. Blended soup is similar to hot vegetable smoothies, and who doesn’t like those?

Okay, maybe it’s weird. But there are health benefits to eating pureed soups, namely, they’re much easier to digest!

Why? Just like the digestion wake up routine I introduced to you a couple of weeks ago, eating ground up foods is softer on your stomach. Think about it. Blended soup is already predigested. It has no big chunks that your body as to breakdown. Just sip, quickly digest, and soak up those easily accessible nutrients!

Sounds pretty easy, doesn’t it?

Well lucky for us, this soup is pretty easy too! (Prepared and served in under 30 minutes)

  1. I tried this with the coconut milk (I have an almond allergy). It turned out fantastic. Thank you!!!!

  2. I love pureed soups, too. This sounds scrumptious (and looks so healthy, too!) We have soup as part of our main meal, once a week in our house, so i think I will try this one next week. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. I’ve been making a lot of pureed soups lately, they go down so easy. This carrot fennel combination sounds really good, and I like the almond milk in it for some extra protein.

    • They sure do! I’m planning to attack another pureed soup later on in the week – can’t wait!
