This recipe is featured from the July 2009 issue of Foods Matter, a magazine (available online) dedicated to food allergies, intolerances, and sensitivities. It uses simple, everyday ingredients, but is spiked with a healthy dose of seaweed for both flavor and nutrition. Overall, the soup is a good source of vitamins A and B6, and is suitable for most diets … include vegan / vegetarian, dairy-free, gluten-free, low fat, and paleo diets. Plus, all you need is four basic ingredients (plus a little sea salt and pepper) to enjoy!
Serves: 6 servings

  • 2 medium onions
  • 1¾lb young carrots [look for bunches with healthy, leafy green tops]
  • 7½ cups gluten and wheat free vegetable stock [homemade or store-bought]
  • 15 leaves dried nori (or other dried Japanese seaweed if you cannot get nori)
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  1. Peel and slice the onions roughly. Trim and scrape the carrot and cut in thick slices.
  2. Put both in a pan with the stock, bring to the boil and simmer, covered, for 25–30 minutes or until the carrots are soft.
  3. Purée in a food processor [or blender] then return to the pan or a bowl.
  4. With scissors cut the nori into very thin strips and stir into the soup while it is still warm.
  5. Season to taste with salt and pepper then chill.
  6. Before serving, adjust seasoning again as it may need a little more when chilled.
