Carrot-Sage Soup With Chive Flatbread

  • Prep Time 1:00 (including dough)
  • Cook Time 0:30
  • Estimated Cost $6.00

This recipe is one of the best ways I know of to make a nice meal for someone for nearly nothing ($6!). It’s full of flavor, thanks to the fresh herbs and garlic, and at merely $3 per person (I’ll be impressed if you manage to eat it all), you can save your hard-earned cash for the bar.


  • 6 large carrots, peeled and diced $1
  • 4 cloves garlic, smashed Pantry
  • 1/2 white onion, roughly chopped $1
  • 8 fresh sage leaves, torn $1.50
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry
  • 1/2 recipe pizza dough $1.50
  • 1 small bunch chives, snipped into 1/4" pieces $1
  • olive oil Pantry

Recipe Serves 2 very generously


  1. Combine carrots, garlic and onion in a large pot. Add water just to cover. Bring to a light boil over high heat, then reduce to medium and cover. Allow to cook for 20-25 minutes or until carrots are soft. Add sage and salt and pepper to taste. Puree in a blender, food processor, or in the pot using an immersion blender, adding a little more water if necessary.
  2. To make the flatbread, divide the dough into 6 pieces. On a clean, floured surface, roll the dough out into 6" rounds. Sprinkle chives on a round and then use the rolling pin to press them into the dough. Repeat with the remaining dough.
  3. Heat 2 tsp olive oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Fry the pieces of chive-rolled dough for 1-2 minutes on each side until brown and bubbly, adding more oil as needed. Sprinkle the flatbreads lightly with salt. Cut into wedges and serve alongside the soup.

Yum. I am all about the immersion blender making a cheap meal appear sophisticated. I’ve also thrown in a small piece of chorizo for a kick.
