Roasted Carrot Soup

Our Christmas celebrations have come to an end, but not the left overs.  I am combining the left over mashed potatoes and roasted carrots to make this creamy roasted carrot soup.

I also made grilled ham and cheese sandwiches for the boys yesterday.  For breakfast on Christmas morning I made potato pancakes with the extra mashed potatoes.

The addition of the Chobani and Honey makes this taste so insanely delicious that it’s a must to make extra roasted carrots and mashed potatoes in anticipation of this great soup.  By the way, you can still make it with fresh, cut carrots and one small baking potato that are uncooked.  The cooking time will take longer for them to soften up.

    • It is better than unicorn. Since the carrots were already roasted in honey and brown sugar, with the addition of the ginger, well, let’s just say, Steve practically licked the bowl. Thanks for the invite it was great seeing you again.
