Carrot Polenta Soup is something that I like to cook when somebody is feeling sick or is cold outside. It’s simple and it’s delicious.

Make sure you sear veggies in olive oil until they are a bit browned, because this is where the flavor comes from. You can also add other vegetable to the base if you want.

You can make it even tastier if you add some soup stock if you have it.

If you are more into creamy soups, take a look at this Roasted Garlic Soup.
