Recipe By In memory of Dave Michalski, Savory Spice customer and good friend

This deliciously thick and spicy carrot soup makes a great starter course for a dinner party. Or turn it into a hearty winter meal by adding a scoop of cooked rice to each serving.

Serving Suggestions

Serve with dollop of plain yogurt, scoop of rice or piece of naan or pita bread to help balance the soup’s heat.

Recipe Notes

This soup has a spicy kick. You can cut back on the cumin, curry powder, or white pepper by up to half (to taste) for an equally flavorful but little less zippy soup.

Step 1: Cook vegetables

Place carrots in a 4-quart saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and simmer until fork tender, about 30 min. Meanwhile, heat oil in a small saute pan over medium heat. Add onions and cook until translucent, about 4 to 6 min.

Step 2: Combine and blend

Drain carrots and place back in saucepan. Add cooked onions and remaining ingredients except for cream to the saucepan with the carrots. Bring to a boil and simmer for 20 min. Remove from heat and use an immersion or stand blender to puree until smooth. Stir in cream to taste and serve.
