Carrot-Ginger Soup

Loaded with surprising hits of curry powder, lime juice, and cilantro, this soup pairs perfectly with a panini or with a salad for dinner. It also makes a wonderful first course for a fancier meal. Make this a vegetarian option by using vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped peeled fresh ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced

  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon curry powder

Preparation

1. Heat a large saucepan over medium heat. Melt butter with olive oil in pan; cook 2 minutes or until butter melts. Add onion, ginger, and garlic. Cook 10 minutes or until onion is soft, stirring occasionally.

2. Stir in broth, carrot, and wine. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 45 minutes.

3. Place half of carrot mixture in a blender. Remove center piece of blender lid (to allow steam to escape); secure blender lid on blender. Place a clean towel over opening in blender lid (to avoid splatters). Blend until smooth. Pour into a bowl. Repeat procedure with remaining carrot mixture.
