I am not a summer person at all.  As soon as it starts to cool off here, I am guilty of pulling out all of our fall decor and making ALL the savory recipes.  We’ll call this savory instant pot carrot soup a summery transition into fall because it tastes like a butter nut squash soup, but you don’t have to worry about trying to find fall season squashes to make it!

We bought too many carrots recently and I realized I should have used them yesterday.  We’ve been stuck inside with the possibility of being impacted by hurricane Irma in the Atlanta metro and so I decided to get creative.  I’m always trying to come up with recipes for my instant pot and I run out of ideas quickly to cook carrots.  This recipe ended up being a win win creation that I will make more often.

ITEMS USED TO MAKE RECIPE

This recipe included kitchen basics like a cutting board and knife, but needed little else.  These are my suggestions below for other items I used though.

  • Instant Pot
    This is my favorite kitchen appliance because I can make foods so quickly now!  I used to make a similar recipe with sweet potatoes in my crockpot in 4 hours, but this one only took under 30 minutes!
  • Ninja Kitchen System
    I don’t have a fancy food processor or a kitchen aid stand mixer.  I honestly use my Ninja blender for everything from making smoothies, mixing cookie dough, and as a food processor.  After two years of constant use, my seal on one of my food processor option has trouble sealing, but I actually found it easier to just use the main blender option to process this since it has a bigger container.

Devin isn’t a puréed food kind of person and said it looked like baby food, but I promise it does not taste like it 😉 .  I could eat puréed food and soup all day everyday and be perfectly fine.

Are you a soup person or nah?  Be sure to pin the recipe if you’d like to try this in the future!
