This vegetarian carrot soup uses all plant-based ingredients to achieve a rich flavor and a creamy texture. Too often, vegetable soups are made with chicken broth. Because they're designed to have this rich broth, they just don't turn out the same when you make them with vegetable broth. The recipe below is completely different. It was developed with vegetarians in mind, so you won't miss a thing.
It might seem weird to add balsamic vinegar to a soup, but don't worry. Unlike other vinegars, balsamic vinegar is pretty low on the acidity scale. It won't add a lot of tangy flavors to the soup, but it will add a burst of sweetness. The syrupy consistency of balsamic vinegar really brings a lot to this dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan soup, so don't omit it.
