Sunday's Soup/Glazed Maple Carrot Soup

 It's been quite a while since I've posted a soup recipe, but I'm back with a good one, if I say so myself. I've posted a number of carrot soups, but what I especially like about this one is that it is truly perfect for the upcoming holidays. And such a nice change from the traditional pumpkin soups. It's quite easy to make, and will freeze beautifully. And too, it's quite aromatic, so it will make your home smell so inviting. 

Begin with 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large pot. Add 2 large yellow onions and saute until tender.

Add 3 cloves of finely chopped garlic and 3 pounds of chopped carrots. Saute until the carrots glisten, and are glazed with the oil. 

Add 8 cups of vegetable broth, and 3 bay leaves. Cook over medium heat until carrots are tender, about 30 minutes. Add 1/2 cup of maple syrup, 1 tablespoon ground coriander, and 1/4 cup of fresh squeezed lime juice. Remove bay leaves, and using a blender or hand held blending wand, blend soup to a smooth consistency. 

Ladle soup into your favorite soup bowls. Garnish with freshly chopped cilantro and a drizzle of maple syrup. YUM!!! :)

  1. This sounds yummy with the lime juice!

  2. I have a huge bag of carrots. Think I'll have Jerry buy the broth and coriander on his way home from physical therapy tomorrow. This might be a good thing for my diet.
