Before getting my Vita-Mix, I avoided making homemade soups. All of the peeling, boiling, stirring and blending sounded like a big mess. This tasty vitamin rich soup took less than 10 minutes and only one container to make. That’s my type of fresh cooking. I used roasted carrots from the previous evening’s meal. Since it doesn’t take any extra effort to cook one or two pounds of carrots, I always cook a double batch, which gives me a head start on the next day. My other carrot time saver is buying pre-shredded or pre-peeled baby carrots. Finding time efficient ways to bring more vegetables to our family table, that they will actually eat, is a driving force of Chubby Chicks Health Club.
