Ingredients

  • 1 lb carrots, peeled and cut into small chunks
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup white onion, chopped
  • 4 cups water or stock
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1 T honey
  • 2 t salt, more or less to taste
  • 1 cup packed fresh basil

Method

  1. Add carrots, garlic, water (or stock) to medium saucepan. Bring the ingredients to a boil over medium heat. Then reduce the heat and let it simmer for 8-9 minutes until the carrotsare soft but not falling apart.
  2. Reserve 1/3 of the soup in a separate saucepan. Add the basil, honey, and lemon into the reserved soup. Then, using a handheld immersion blender or regular blender, purée both saucepans until smooth. Return both mixtures to separate saucepans and slowly reheat.
