With the chill creeping back into the air, hot soup is on the menu again. And when you’re trying to get the family together for a meal, soup is often a quick and comforting option that’s easy to pack tons of veggies into. Your entire family will love this sweet and lightly spiced soup. Pair with a little chicken on a side salad to round out the meal.
You can save time and steps by cooking the vegetables in the stock, but roasting them with the spices helps the flavors develop more deeply. Top with a little plain yogurt if desired. If you enjoy a little heat, our taste-testers found that they enjoyed this soup with extra black pepper–the bite of the pepper pairs well with the rich sweetness of the potatoes and carrots.
