How NOT to make carrot soup

Recently, I was gifted an abnormally large bag of baby carrots (Costco size). After many bowls of chicken soup, there were still more carrots than I knew what to do with. I have been wanting to try using a blender to make soup (as seen on Iron Chef America) and this was my opportunity.
It all started with fully cooked, tender carrots in chicken stock:

added salt, pepper, indian ginger powder

and old bay seasoning

and chili powder, ground cloves, sesame seeds

more sesame seeds on top for texture

It was NOT good at all! I forced myself to eat a bowl, but the rest went down the drain. What did I do wrong???

  1. Hrm…looks like a case of not enough stock. I usually add a little more liquid than needed so I can adjust the consistency when blending

  2. You could try what they do for sauces on TV and run it through a sieve.
