Silken Carrot Soup

  • Makes0 servings

Almost unbelievably simple, this smooth and delicious carrot soup is just perfect for all the little bunnies in your life.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp butter

  • 3 cups scrubbed and sliced carrots, (about 6 medium)

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 4 cups chicken broth

  • 1/3 cup uncooked white rice

  • salt

  • black pepper

  • plain yogurt, sour cream or chopped parsley (for garnish)

Instructions

  • In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the carrots and onion, and cook, stirring, until the onions begin to soften – about 5 minutes. Add the broth and bring to a boil. Throw in (hey, gently – no splashing) the rice, then adjust the heat to low and let simmer until both the carrots and rice are soft – about 20 minutes. Stir once or twice so nothing sticks to the bottom, but otherwise you can ignore it.

  • When everything is nice and soft, adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if necessary, then blend in a blender or food processor, in 2 or 3 batches, until perfectly smooth. A When everything is nice and soft, adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if necessary, then blend in a blender or food processor, in 2 or 3 batches, until perfectly smooth. A regular blender will probably give you the creamiest result, but you can do this even with one of those groovy hand blender thingies. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  • Serve hot, garnished with a swirl of plain yogurt or sprinkle of chopped fresh parsley.
