Spices make carrot soup more interesting

Carrot soup can be improved with spices

Adding culinary spices is a great way to make carrot soup more interesting, one Michelin-starred chef has suggested.

In an article for the National, Marco Pierre White explained chillis or cardamom pods can be used by those who are "feeling a bit more adventurous" and want to make some changes to the dish.

"A carrot soup, when made well, is one of the simplest and most delicious things you can cook. But you do need to spice it up," Mr Pierre White observed, adding that in the recipe he favours, he uses thyme, salt and pepper - as well as honey - to bring out the flavour.

He said carrots share some characteristics with tomatoes in that they have more zest when cooked than when raw, noting they need "some tweaks" in order to make them taste as good as possible

Mulligatawny is another soup recipe that requires a spice, with Katie Scarvey, writing for US newspaper the Salisbury Post, noting garam masala is one of the most important ingredients for the dish.
