Ingredients

  • 2 medium onions
  • 250g carrots
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 225g cooking chorizo
  • 250g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3 tbsp chopped chives
  • 1 carrot, peeled into thin strips

Step by step

Get ahead
Make up to 2 days ahead. Reheat, and fry the chorizo before serving.
  1. Peel and roughly chop the onions and the 250g carrots, then let them soften for a few minutes in the olive oil over a moderate heat.
  2. Cut 4 slices off the chorizo and set aside. Skin and chop the remaining chorizo and brown in the pan. Add the tomatoes, 500ml water and a bay leaf. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Pour the soup in batches into a blender or food processor (discard the bay leaf), then blitz and return to the pan. Grill or fry the reserved chorizo until golden. Add a further 250ml water to the soup, and salt and pepper. Bring back to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring regularly. Peel the extra carrot into thin strips. Ladle the soup into bowls and finish with the reserved chorizo, carrot shavings and chives.
Chef quote
Chorizo adds a more substantial note to carrot soup than the classic coriander – you will still get the sweetness of spring carrots, but with a deep savoury note too.
