Perfect for Peter Rabbit: Pumpkin-Carrot Soup

How about some soup for Spring, inspired by none other than Peter Rabbit? Sound interesting? Well, then read on...

Recently, I posted onto Facebook that I was on a homemade soup kick.
The soup that garnered requests for the recipe was the Pumpkin-Carrot Soup that my boys and I made.
One of the main ingredients: Peter Rabbit Organics Pumpkin-Carrot-Apple Veggie Blends Snacks, so since Easter is right around the corner, sharing a Peter Rabbit themed snack seems just about right!
Here is Our Pumpkin-Carrot Soup Recipe:
I kind of tweaked two recipes: one for butternut squash soup and one for pumpkin soup to make this soup. Big Bro & Little Bro had fun helping to make and eat this soup!

2 packages Peter Rabbit Organics Pumpkin-Carrot-Apple Veggie Blends Snacks
Approx. 1 cup cooked, puréed organic carrots*
*Our carrots were cooked in chicken stock the day before, but this is optional.
1 T. butter
1 scallion, finely chopped
1/2 tsp. thyme leaves
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Add thyme, cinnamon, and chopped scallions, and butter to a microwaveable cup or add to a small saucepan.
Cook until butter is melted and then stir and set aside.
Empty contents of two Peter Rabbit Organics Veggie Blends snacks as well as 1 cup cooked, puréed carrots to a blender.
Spoon in the melted butter-herb-spice mix to the veggie purées.
Pulse to blend ingredients.

To make this more of a cream based soup, add in 1 T. half and half or milk. If you don't want it to be cream based, skip this step.

Return blended ingredients to a microwaveable container or to a saucepan and cook.
Let simmer for a few minutes and then serve.

*We had leftover puréed carrots cooked in chicken stock from the chicken noodle soup I made the day before. You could just use cooked carrots and purée them without the chicken stock if you wish.

Season to taste with extra cinnamon or a bit of thyme or both.

Makes about 2 adult sized servings or two kids sized servings plus 1 adult sized serving.

The boys both loved this soup and so did I. It was pretty tasty! Mmm...

Do you have a favorite carrot soup recipe?
Or do you have another recipe made from one of the Peter Rabbit Organics Fruit Blends or Veggie Blends?
If you do, please share in the comments section of this post.
I'd love to try out your recipes and am sure that others would as well.

Happy Spring!
