Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled, grated
  • 1 clove garlic, sliced
  • 2 pounds carrots (10 to 12), sliced
  • 6 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • Juice of 1 lime, plus lime wedges for garnish, optional
  • 1 cup plain yogurt (not nonfat)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

  1. 1. Warm oil in a pot over medium heat. Add onion; sauté until softened, 6 to 8 minutes. Add ginger and garlic; sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  2. 2. Raise heat to medium-high; stir in carrots. Pour broth into pot, cover and bring to a simmer. Remove cover, reduce heat to medium to maintain a simmer and cook until carrots are very tender, about 25 minutes. Remove soup from heat and let cool slightly.
  3. 3. Working in batches, purée soup in a blender until smooth. Transfer to a large bowl, cover and refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours.
  4. 4. Just before serving, stir in lime juice and yogurt. Season with salt and pepper. Serve chilled, garnished with lime wedges, if desired.
