Cream of peas and carrots soup

This soup is not only super delicious but healthy and quick to prepare, too.
I believe, almost every veggie soup could use a little crème fraîche or cream and a small potato for extra thickness, creaminess and deliciousness. Not this, thou! This soup is so amazing as it is, I can’t believe it.
I usually prepare this soup when I am dieting, cause it’s low on calories, has no cream, potatoes or other anti-dieting ingredients. It’s basically cream of healthy, nutritious vegetables! But this one is totally worthy of being on your table any other day of the week, dieting or not.
God bless curry, basil and thyme, which may seem to you like an odd combination at the moment but wait till you taste it.
Of course, when not dieting you can totally serve this soup with a spoon of crème fraîche, roasted nuts, croutons, bacon or cheese.
And did I tell you how quick you can whip this one up – only one pot and 30 minutes of simmering.
Enjoy.
