Picture a basketful of carrots and spinach. How vibrantly colourful it looks! Indeed, this sumptuous soup reflects the same freshness. The complementary flavours of carrots and spinach, perked up further with ingredients like onions and pepper make this soup a great hit. The method of adding some of the ingredients like onions and spinach in sautéed form rather than blending everything gives the Carrot and Spinach Soup a nice mouth-feel too.
