I’m working with Grimmway Farms to share their sweet baby carrots with you. We love to eat them out of hand and to use them in recipes. They have a number of great products to check out.

I roasted the carrots and leeks with olive oil & garlic salt first to bring out all their fabulous flavors.

I’m so in love with the flavor & vibrant color of this soup!

Of course I topped this recipe with crispy bacon & goat cheese.

Just so you know…baby carrots are full-grown, young premium carrots that are cut, peeled and packaged to make eating carrots easy, portable and enjoyable for the whole family.

Carrots are a nutrition powerhouse, providing over 15 essential vitamins and minerals along with phytonutrients and fiber that are important for good health. Cool huh!

And the leeks….alot milder onions taste than an actual onion….

I made this for dinner tonight and it was so tasty! I don’t normally care for cooked carrots, but in a smooth soup, they were sweet and very good. I added a red pepper when I roasted the carrots and leek. This recipe is a definite keeper, and I especially loved the fact that a giant 2-cup serving was only 141 calories!!

24 Marla December 16, 2013 at 7:01 pm

Thats a great idea to add the red pepper! Must try over here as well :)
