Chez Mimi's Carrot Soup

Chez Mimi’s Carrot Soup

This is a delicious carrot soup with a robust flavor and the cayenne gives it a little kick!


  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, minced
  • 4 cups of sliced leeks, white parts only
  • 2 1/2 pounds of carrots (mini carrots simplify the recipe)
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cumin
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper (cayenne pepper is strong, so add according to your taste)
  • 8 cups of chicken or veggie stock
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat oil in a large stockpot over medium heat.
  2. Add the garlic, leeks, and carrots, cook until the leeks are softened, about ten minutes.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer until the carrots are very tender (about 30-40 minutes).
  4. Puree in batches and adjust seasonings.
