The versatile potato often plays a supporting role in a meal, but in this recipe it's the star in creating a creamy soup that is brightened up with the addition of grated carrots. Try not to peel the potatoes when you cook and purée them because unpeeled potatoes are rich in folic acid. Carbohydrates tend to be the best tolerated nutrient in early pregnancy, so this soup is a boon for those days.
