This soup is full packed with great flavors and super comforting. Roasting veggies has become quite of an addiction for me so instead of just cooking those carrots, I wanted to get that oven baked flavor with them.
I used Harissa as a powder for those carrots but I am sure the paste will be just as fine. In case the soup gets too thick after blending it, you can add some more water or almond milk.
