Creamy Carrot – “Potato” Bisque with Bacon

Carrot BisqueSimple, Delicious & CHEAP! 

Some recipes come out of necessity and this is one of them… too many carrots!! A few weeks ago I stocked up on organic carrots at Trader Joe’s because I couldn’t believe how cheap they were… around $1 a pound. My 3 year old loves crunching on raw carrots and I like to snack on them with some cheese (or even nut butters) when I want a crunch. 

Digging through my fridge yesterday I realized that I had an extra pound of carrots that needed to be cooked, and I also had a quart of homemade bone broth that needed to be used. The result…. Creamy Carrot Bisque! Because of the flavors from my wonderful bone broth, this bisque really reminds me of a potato soup with just a hint of sweetness. I decided to play on those flavors by adding a little cooked bacon and a dollop of sour cream. The result… absolute Deliciousness! 

If you would like to add a potato or two, go right a head. Please use this recipe as a base for your imagination! Ginger or curry powder would be great flavors in it too! I hope you enjoy the recipe!

Instructions
  1. In a large sauce pan, add bone broth and carrots. Cover and bring to a boil. Cook for approximately 10 minutes or until the carrots are tender.

    Me too!

    I made the “hamburger helper” recipe this week and it was a BIG hit with the family. Can’t wait to serve this also.
