Vegan Recipe of the Week - Spicy Organic Carrot Soup

This is such a simple recipe, and great when you fancy something warming and nourishing. Makes a lovely lunch with a homemade bread roll, or as a starter.

Serves 4.


5-6 organic carrots, peeled and sliced
1 large organic onion, peeled and diced
750ml vegetable stock
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp dried parsley
1 Tbsp Henderson's Relish (or Vegan Worcestershire sauce)
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste


Prepare the vegetables and make up the stock.

In a large saucepan heat the olive oil and sauté the onion until soft.

Then add the carrots to the saucepan.

Next add the stock to the pan.

Bring to the boil and then add the herbs, spices, sauce and seasonings. Stir thoroughly, cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes.

Take the soup off the heat. Using a hand blender, blend until smooth. At this point, if the soup is too thick for your liking add boiling water until at a consistency you prefer.

This soup keeps in the fridge for 72 hours and can be frozen. I make double portions and freeze the rest so I always have a homemade soup on hand.

Eat and Enjoy!

Big Vegan Love,



  1. - where in UK do you find Vegan Worcestershire sauce ? (I'm not actually vegan,. but think if I can in some ways reduce the amount of animal-based products I'm consuming > unnecessarily < it can only HELP my veggie-diet...if that makes sorta sense!?!)

    1. Hi there are several brands of vegan Worcestershire style sauce, most independent health food shops sell them and you can buy online from veganstore.co.uk. There is one by Biona, one by Granovita and Henderson's Relish. Hope that helps. Ordinary Worcestershire sauce is not even vegetarian as it contains fish. VVx
