This cream of carrots soup is a great way to include carrots in your diet. A cup of boiled carrots contains over 30% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin A, which keeps your immune system, your eyes, and bones happy. Vitamin A also increases women's fertility and plays an important role in embryonic development.
Here in Romania carrots are considered by some the number one vegetable to use as a base in soups. Then come celery root (celeriac) and parsnip or parsley root. Onion is also used all the time, but you'll notice if you boil an onion separately in one liter of water that its taste is not too strong (and it's of course even weaker if you use one onion to a large pot of soup).
