Looking for a healthy lunch packed with prenatal vitamins? Our delicious soup includes beta carotene and vitamin C – perfect for your pregnancy diet!

Another souper easy recipe that only takes minutes to make. Carrots are rich in beta-carotene with is good for your eyesight, immune system and healthy skin. It’s better to scrub carrots clean rather than peel them as many of the nutrients are located in the outer covering. Tomatoes are packed with antioxidants and pregnancy nutrients, especially Vitamin C which helps form healthy bones, teeth and gums.


1 medium onion, finely chopped.
1 clove of garlic, crushed.
I tbsp olive oil.
3-4 large carrots roughly chopped into small cubes.
2 tins of chopped tomatoes .
½ pint of chicken or vegetable stock.
2-3 tbsps crème fraiche.
1 tbsp of fresh oregano (if available) and a sprig of fresh thyme both finely chopped – or used dried oregano & thyme to taste.
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Gently fry the onion and garlic in the oil until the onion is transparent.
  2. Add the carrots, stir and fry for a minute or two before pouring in the stock.
  3. Simmer gently until the carrots are tender (this shouldn’t take more than 5-10 minutes) and add the tomatoes and herbs.
  4. Continue to simmer to allow the flavours to meld together and blend.
  5. Add the crème fraiche and more water if it’s too thick.
  6. Re-heat gently.
  7. Season to taste and serve with an extra swirl of crème fraiche on top. Vary the herbs to ring the changes – flat leaf parsley works well.
