Carrot Ginger Soup

By Stonyfield

I want to paint my walls this color! Just looking at this soup will warm your insides. Serve it as a main course, or as an appetizer in a shot glass garnished with a curl of Parmesan. You can also try topping with a swirl of pesto or a dollop of crab meat.

    Step 1

    In a 4-quart stockpot over medium-high heat, add butter and oil. Once butter is melted add onions and celery. Cook until onions are translucent, about 3-4 minutes. Add ginger and garlic to the pot and cook for about 30 seconds. Add the carrots, stirring occasionally, until carrots are slightly caramelized, 7-8 minutes. Add stock, salt, pepper, and bay leaf bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 20-25 minutes until carrots are soft.

    Step 2

    Remove the stockpot from burner and take the bay leaf out. Using an immersion blender, purée soup. (You can also let soup cool and purée in a food process or blender.)

    Step 3

    Add more salt and pepper to taste. Stir in 3/4 cup yogurt. Return to burner and reheat over medium. Ladle into serving bowls and garnish with remaining yogurt and chopped chives.

    make it with yogurt instead!
