It’s hard to say goodbye to Summer, yet I find this to be one of the most graceful transitions of life. Everything around us change! Change can be a transformational and a powerful thing, and hopefully the changes inside of us is equally measured by the changes happening on the outside.

Speaking of change, on the menu this week is Carrot Soup!

To be fair, I’ve been craving soups and warm dishes for a couple weeks now, which is why I made this Instant Pot Tomato Soup, Dutch Oven Beef Stew and Sweet Corn Risotto. It felt heartwarming and delicious to give in to my body’s cravings.

I love eating intuitively and I invite you to do the same. It’s what feels most nourishing to our body. If you think about it, our body is this incredible machine working 24/7 and intelligently guiding us towards what it needs. So if we listen carefully, and fulfill its needs, our body (our home) should work smoothly.

Did I loose you in my deep thoughts? Lol, I know you are here for the soup so let’s get to it!

I have recently shared on Instagram that I have been making this Carrot Soup since my (now 18 yrs old) daughter was a baby. We had moved to Brazil and at this particular village we were staying did not have baby shelf food, nor would I have considered it given the abundantly fresh amounts of produce available and inexpensively.

So in my long carrot soup journey, the key to a delicious recipe is simplicity. Keep things simple and minimal, ingredients clean and subtle flavors that will complement the carrots without overpowering it. Just like baby food but with a little more flavor 🙂

This Instant Pot Simple Carrot Soup is naturally Vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free and Whole30 compliant, just be sure to read the ingredient labels.
