Curried Carrot Soup

We go through a ton of carrots in my house in winter so I buy the huge pound bags. The ones I need help out with. So when my produce drawer is look pretty bleak, I know I can always count on having carrots. This soup is made from staples in the NOURISHED kitchen. I love carrots not only for their booming nutritional value, but it’s an easy sale. I know if it has carrots, my girls will eat it.
