It’s been a while since I posted cooking recipes and with this cold ambient I wanted to offer you some simple soup recipes to warm up.

Carrot soup with curry:

Ingredients for 4 persons:

  • 2 onions
  • 600g carrots
  • 1 tablespoon of curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1l of chicken or vegetable broth
  • 6 portions of laughing cow cheese
  • salt and pepper


  1. Fry the onions with the curry and cumin.
  2. Add the carrots cut into rounds then the broth and cook for 20 to 25 minutes
  3. Once the carrots are cooked, mix everything, add the cheese, salt and pepper

For the croutons:

  1. Slice your bread in dices.
  2. In a pan add some oil a smash garlic and some thyme.
  3. When the garlic is a bit brown throw the bread in the pan.
  4. when the bread is toasted scatter it over your bowl of soup

Mushroom soup and croque monsieur

Ingredients for 4 persons:

  • 2 shallots
  • 500g of mushrooms
  • 20/25cl of fresh cream
  • 1l of chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon of tarragon
  • salt an pepper
  • Some rocket leaves for decoration (optional)


  1. Fry the shallots
  2. Add mushrooms and cook until they are soft, add the broth and cook for 10 min
  3. Mix everything and add the tarragon, the salt an pepper.


I let you 2 choices I like a lot with my mushroom soup:

Croques monsieur

A slice of cheese and a slice of ham between 2 slice of bread you toast on the oven until the bread is toasted

Ham toast

  1. put some olive oil on a pan and toast your bread in it.
  2. rub a clove of raw garlic on the toasted bread, emphasizing the crust.
  3. Spread the bread with walnut cheese (or fresh cheese if you are lacking)
  4. Added a slice of ham on top

Whether it’s one or the other, I really like to dip them in my soup like you can dip a slice of bread in your tea.

I hope you will like it!

Take care of yourself and you loved ones and see you soon!
