Yummy!! And based on what I was told as a little girl about eating my carrots, I can already see better.
When I was thinking about a recipe for today’s post, I asked my friend Stephanie for suggestions. She is a great cook with lots of tips, recipes, and good vibes. I should mention that we were sweating it out in our 6 a.m. workout class when this conversation took place.
She suggested that I try a recipe she had prepared the night before and proceeded to give me the easy ingredients and directions for carrot soup. This is all you need:
– 1 tablespoon olive oil
– 1 tablespoon butter
– 1 medium onion, finely chopped
– 1/2 teaspoon salt (If you use homemade stock, you might need less).
– 1/4 teaspoon pepper
– 1 pound carrots, cut into 1-ince pieces
– 2 14-ounce cans chicken broth
– Water (I like a thick soup, so I omitted it).
Heat olive oil and butter in a medium-sized pot. Add the chopped onion and saute till it is tender. Add the carrots and broth. Simmer till the carrots are tender. At this point, Stephanie added water. Blend in a blender, food processor, or with an immersion blender (that’s what I used).
I topped it with some fresh thyme. The only downer is that I didn’t have a slice of my homemade bread to go with it.
I can’t guarantee that this will help your eyesight, but the world is looking a whole lot brighter to me. Just sayin’. Thanks, Stephanie.
