Test Kitchen tips

  • Most people think they need to peel carrots before using them, but you don’t! Save yourself the extra step and just give them a good scrub as you would any other fresh produce.

    Yukon Gold potatoes—instead of cream—make a smooth carrot soup vegan and add a mild sweetness. If you don’t have Yukon Golds on hand, russet potatoes will work, too. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
