Carrot Ginger Soup


Sauté for 15-20 min:

-6 Tbsp non-salted butter (margarine for vegan)
-1 yellow onion, chopped
-1/4 c. ginger, peeled and chopped small
-3 cloves garlic, minced

Add:

-7 cups stock (chicken or vegetable)
-1 cup white cooking wine (or try substituting diluted white wine vinegar or white grape juice, or ginger ale)
-1.5 lbs (approx. 5-7) carrots, chopped in 1/2" pieces

Bring to a boil, then simmer, uncovered, for 45 minutes.

Purée either in batches in a blender (be careful because the hot liquid could cause a pressure build up and you could get scalded) or with a handheld blender (recommended).

Season with:

-2 Tbsp lemon juice
-dash curry
-Salt 'n' Peppa to taste

Garnish ideas:
-ye olde faithfulle sprig of parsley
-plain yogurt or sour cream "spiralled" in the middle

yum! though I've tried carrot soup before (from the moosewood cookbook) and the deacon was polite about it, and ever so graciously finished the bowl, but I could tell this was not a dish to be repeated. :)
perhaps the ginger makes all the difference?

btw, I've been perusing the latest admissions. you are quite the culinary epicure!

I should start posting my recipes here too. I lovelovelove gnocchi and pesto.
