Carrot and Ginger Soup with Marmite Croutons

Carrot and Ginger Soup with Marmite Croutons

I often think carrot soup can be difficult to get right.  What it needs is something spicy, sour, bitter or salty to offset the sweetness of the carrots. Otherwise I feel like I’ve had enough after just a few spoonfuls.  I’ve had bad carrot soup but I’ve also had soups I’ve wanted to make again straightaway such as this carrot and tahini one.

Even so, when I picked carrot and ginger soup for this month’s Random Recipes I didn’t want to make it.   I waited.   There are always a few recipes I plan to make each month but never get around to.   This month I though it would be the carrot soup.  Then along came National Vegetarian Week from 19-25 May, which made carrot soup so much harder to avoid.   In the end, I gave in and made the soup.
