Instruction

Carrot Soup Basic Recipe

butter
Fresh butter in a bowl

Prepare butter

Set a large tall pot on the stove, add butter or vegetable oil to the pot.

I like to use butter or ghee or clarified butter.

Nut butter, that's browned butter.
Nut butter in a bowl.

Optional nut butter

If time allows, boil the butter in a saucepan.

Let the butter brown slightly at reduced temperature.

Pass the butter and refrigerate.

The browned nut butter brings a wonderful, nutty flavor to your soup.

Prepare carrots
Cut carrots on a kitchen board.

Prepare carrots

Prepare the carrots: wash, peel and cut into small pieces and place in the pot.

I usually halve the carrots lengthways and cut thin slices, small carrot slices cook faster, then the soup is ready quickly.

Dice the shallot
Halve the shallot and cut into fine cubes.

Prepare onions

Peel and finely dice the onions or shallots and place in the pot.

Finely chop the garlic and add it as well. Optionally cut a potato into small pieces and add to the vegetables. Note on garlic:

I never press garlic as it makes the garlic bitter and pungent in taste.

4. Tips for Carrot Soup with Cream

Bring the basic soup to the boil, slowly pour a cup of cream into the boiling liquid and bring to the boil.

Season the soup with salt, pepper, nutmeg and a little cayenne pepper.

Add a piece of cold butter and mix with the hand blender until fluffy.

Always pour cold cream slowly into the boiling soup and bring to the boil and mix immediately. So the cream never flocculates!

5. Tips for Carrot Soup with Coconut Milk

Shake a can of coconut milk well before opening. Slowly pour the coconut milk into the boiling soup and bring to the boil.

Season the soup with salt, pepper, nutmeg and a little cayenne pepper, refine the soup with orange juice.

Orange juice gives the soup an exciting aroma and an interesting acidity. You can also mix this soup with a cold piece of butter with the hand blender until fluffy.

Coconut milk and orange juice go great with the carrot

Tip from chef Thomas Sixt
Filleted oranges
Oranges filleted lying in orange juice. Always squeeze the juice from the remaining fruit.

6. Tips for Carrot Soup with Ginger

Both the basic soup and the soup with cream or coconut milk taste great with ginger.

Cut two slices of ginger into small pieces and add the ginger to the soup immediately after deglazing.

The ginger now has enough time to develop its taste and the aroma can develop wonderfully.

Cut the turmeric on an extra pad, like I did, the turmeric turns wooden boards and white boards ugly yellow!

7. Tips for Cream of Carrot Soup with Curry… and Turmeric

For the curry variant, I recommend the variant with coconut milk and ginger.

These ingredients just go great together and harmonize perfectly.

Supplement the soup with some turmeric.

Turmeric is extremely healthy and supports digestion.

Please always combine curry with something sweet. Honey or brown sugar can be used for carrot soup.
