Rice and Carrot Soup Recipe

I first sampled this colorful carrot soup at a local Victorian tea room and wouldn't leave until I had the recipe in hand. The chef was kind enough to share it with me so I could enjoy it anytime at home.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 50 min. YIELD:4-5 servings


  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 3 cups chopped carrots
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons uncooked long grain rice
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper


  • 1. In a large saucepan, saute the onion in 2 tablespoons butter. Add the carrots, broth and rice. Bring to a boil.

"We loved it! I put in a salt substitute (similar to Mrs. Dash) in place of the salt and pepper. I will definitely make this again the same way."

"I made this for lunches and it was awesome. I am looking forward to trying a lower fat version... possibly with fat free half and half instead of the heavy cream."

"I made this for the frist time back in Oct. My daughter loved it. I lost the book that it was in and have been looking for it. She has been asking for me to make it again so now I have it again and will be making it all the time."
