Ingredients

  • 1 pound white carrots
  • 1/4 cup peanut oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1 tablespoon minced green onion

  • 8 cups vegetable stock

Directions

Peel the carrots and slice thinly. In a stockpot, heat the oil and saute the garlic, minced ginger, green onions and pepper flakes for 1 to 2 minutes or just until glossy. Do not allow to develop color. Add the carrots, salt, pepper, turmeric and honey. Saute for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the stock and bring to a boil. Lower to a simmer and add the cream. Cook for 40 minutes or until carrots are tender.

Transfer to a blender; add the butter and process to a puree. Strain soup into a new stockpot. If the soup is too thick, add extra stock. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt, pepper and honey. Keep warm.

Preheat oil to 300 degrees F.

Deep-fry the ginger and drain on plate lined with paper towel.

To serve: ladle 6 to 8 ounces of soup. Garnish with fried ginger. Serve immediately.
