What’s In This Carrot Top Soup Recipe?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Carrots, Onion, Celery, Zucchini, Garlic
  • Herbes de Provence: my favorite spice blend! This French blend has a mix of rosemary, thyme, sage, and savory for a wonderful and complex flavor.
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • No Salt Added Chickpeas: one of my favorite pantry staple ingredients! You can use canned chickpeas (I’d highly recommend a low sodium or no salt version), or you can make your own chickpeas from scratch in the Instant Pot.
  • Vegetable stock – or any stock you would use in a soup (chicken broth or beef broth also work)
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste

How Do I Make Soup with Carrot Greens?

  1. In a soup pot, heat the olive oil over low heat and add in the onion and garlic. Stir and sauté for 6 to 7 minutes until the vegetables have begun to soften.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients to the soup pot and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Allow the soup to simmer for 30 minutes until the vegetables and carrot greens are tender.
  3. With an immersion blender (or by transferring small batches of soup to a large blender) blend the soup on high until it becomes a thick velvety consistency.
  4. Taste and add additional salt and pepper if desired. Serve with croutons, crackers, or homemade sourdough bread.
