Vegetarian Carrot Soup

"Don't let the everyday staples in this recipe fool you into thinking it will be bland. This is a rich soup that even my children-ages 2, 5, 7, and 9-gobble up. I eat this with a turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread and a small salad for a healthy and filling lunch. Eating healthy doesn't have to be boring!"

I would make this in a pressure cooker. Cuts the cooking time by 60%.

Stir in peanut butter instead of regular butter and you can skip the turkey sandwich.
