Quick Carrot and Sausage Soup

The other day, my husband rushed back from office, mid day and I realized he had a fever. I was on panic mode as there was nothing in the fridge and I knew a bowl of soup would make him feel better. The only thing in the fridge was the carrots I keep for my sons carrot puree and luckily there was  a pack of chicken sausages. I made the soup in half an hour and he felt much better the minute he took the  first sip. Thankfully his fever did not last more that a two days.

((Note to self) – Always keep enough vegetables in the fridge to make a soup)

Ingredients ( for one bowl)

1) Carrots –  4 medium size
2) Onion – 1 ( finely chopped)
3) Garlic – 1 tsp of garlic chopped
4) Chilly powder or Paprika – 1 tsp
5) Sausages – 5 medium size
6) Bell Pepper – Half of one ( chopped into little squares)
7) Salt – half a tsp
8) Olive oil – 2 tbsp
9) Pepper powder – (optional) 1/2 tsp
10) Water – 1 cup

Instructions –

Preheat the oven to 180.
Prep your carrots by washing, drying, arranging them on the baking tray and drizzling it with a little olive oil. Once the oven is ready let the carrots roast for 15 – 20 mins. Once they are almost golden pull them out.
While the carrots get ready, heat the water in a sauce pan, Once the water starts to boil, add the sausages and let them cook well. Once done take out the sausages and reserve the water separately.
Once the carrots have cooled,  in the same pan heat the olive oil and add the onions and garlic. Fry till the raw smell of the onion is gone. Now transfer the carrots, onion garlic mixture into a blender. Add the chilly powder and salt. Blend till the mixture is nice and smooth. Now transfer the carrot mixture to the sauce pan and add the sausage water. Let it simmer for a while. Mean while you can chop up the sausages to small circles and add to the boiling mixture.

Bring the soup to a boil and its ready!!

Garnish it with bell pepper and coriander leaves.
