Potato And Carrot Cream With Spicy Octopus

>
>
This  started out with the plan to make a simple potato cream soup with bacon. Soon I realized that I had no bacon in the house, so I tried to figure out another approach. Checking the cupboard revealed Spanish octopus in virgin olive oil. I also had a bunch of nice, sweet carrots. This might at first seems like an odd combination, but when you think about it – seafood, potatoes and root vegetables – surely a match made in heaven 🙂 The result was even more delicious and balanced as I had expected, so this dish will definitely be a new standby for me, either as a substantial main course or a small appetizer 🙂
