I have come up with yet another yummy yummy soup today. Really wanted to give it a try when one of my friends Sudha, suggested me this. Went through few different recipes online and I liked this one from Food network. Though, there are few variations according my taste. I must really say, you’ll thoroughly enjoy the taste. For those who might think the soup will taste sweet as it’s Carrot soup, I promise, the ginger and other spices do their trick and the sweetness is very well balanced. As you all know, Carrots are highly nutritious and you can have this soup often. Specially in this chilly winter! So, here goes the recipe.. Happy Cooking!
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp Olive oil
1 medium Onion – finely chopped
1 1/2 cup Carrots – chopped into small cubes
1 Bay leaf
1 tbsp Ginger – minced
1 tsp Garlic – minced
2 cups Vegetable broth
Pinch of nutmeg
Pepper powder to taste
Salt to taste
Spring Onions/Parsley/Cilantro to garnish (I have used spring onions)
1. Heat the sauce pan. Melt butter and add oil. Add a bay leaf and then onions, sweat them for a while.
5. Discard the bayleaf and blend it until all carrots are done with a hand blender or if you don’t have a hand blender, bring carrots and little liquid to mixi jar and blend well, return this to the sauce pan with the remaining liquid.
