Carrot Ginger Soup
1 Tbsp canola oil
1 1/2 cups sliced onions
1 1/2 Tbsp peeled, chopped fresh gingerroot
4 cups chopped carrots (5 - 6 large carrots)
4 cups vegetable stock or water
1/2 Tbsp salt
1/2 cup soymilk or light cream (optional - the labbits used heavy cream, because that's what they had)
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
|Peel the carrots.|
|Peel the ginger.|
In a large pot, heat the oil and saute the onions for 3 - 5 minutes or until translucent. Add the ginger and saute for 1 minute. Stir in the carrots and stock and bring to a boil. Add the salt. Reduce heat to simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 40 minutes.
|Soups are so simple!|
In a blender or food processor, puree the mixture until creamy, adding the soymilk, if desired. Return the mixture to the pot, reheat, and stir in the black pepper and chives. Serve immediately.
|Swirl in heavy cream for a smooth, creamy soup.|
