Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 pound carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cups freshly made or store-bought carrot juice (16 ounces)
  • One 14 1/2-ounce can low-sodium canned chicken stock, skimmed of fat, plus more for thinning, if desired
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons half-and-half (optional)
  • Chopped fresh chives, for garnish
  • Ground cayenne pepper, for garnish

Directions

  1. Heat the butter in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the onion, and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the carrots, and cook until very tender, about 15 minutes. Do not brown. Add the carrot juice, stock, cumin, honey, salt, and white pepper. Bring to a simmer, and cook until vegetables are very soft, about 30 minutes.

  2. Remove from heat, and cool slightly. Puree in batches in a blender or food processor, filling no more than halfway. Return to pan, and warm over low heat, thinning with stock or water if needed. Stir in half-and-half, if using. Garnish with chives and cayenne, and serve.
