carrot soup with pecorino

I am very excited that we finally have a vegetable box subscription. Every friday we receive a surprise box full of vegetables from a local organic farm.

This friday’s box came with a lot of carrots. I don’t usually buy carrots although I really like them. So that’s the good thing with the subscription box – you receive vegetables you might not usually buy and so you get creative.

The carrot soup I made was really rich and creamy, although it was all veggies, spices and honey. I made pecorino biscuits as a the little treat to have with the soup.

I am not a big soup fan but maybe I am starting to. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
