Cream of Potato Soup with Carrots

Potato and Carrot, Caraway Flavored Creamy Soup | Supa crema de cartofi cu chimen

This cream of potato soup has a unique flavor given by caraway seeds and a lovely, vibrant color created by adding carrots! 

I am a huge fan of creamy soups! My all-time favorite is the red lentil soup, but honestly, this cream of potato soup goes straight to the second place. I also like caraway seeds. I can’t say I’m a huge fan, but they really go great with potatoes, so I often add them to potato recipes.

Did you know that caraway is great for digestion? Yes! If you experience some digestion problems all you need is to make yourself 2-3 cups/day of caraway tea and you’ll start feeling a lot better. Just add 1 tsp of caraway seeds in a cup of boiling water and infuse for 10 minutes. It is even better if you have ground caraway seeds.

Now, about this delicious cream of potato soup…well, it’s easy and ready really fast! Yep…I love to cook, but don’t really enjoy spending lots of hours in the kitchen, especially on hot summer days, so this recipe is perfect for those times when you want to prepare a quick and easy lunch.

All you need to do is quickly peel and rinse the veggies, cut in chunks and let them boil. Ready in less than 30 minutes, this cream of potato soup is just perfect for any season! Add some croutons and it will be even better!

  1. I absolutely love this soup and your pictures are amazing! I skipped the caraway seeds because I’m not a big fan of them and the result is just as delicious. Thanks!

  2. An elderly friend of mine had a Hungarian grandmother. He often mentions that she made a wonderful caraway potato soup and wishes he could have some. I’m going to make this for him when I visit him. Thanks so much.

    1. Ce ma bucur!! Sa adaugi chimen si in mancarea de cartofi. La fel de bine merge! De fapt e delicios in orice combinatie alaturi de cartofi. 😀
