Introduction

I wanted to make a hot soup version of my favorite smoothie (carrot, ginger & apples in low fat yogurt) and this is what I came up with. It's highly adaptable--I like spicy Indian flavors best, but it's good with cinnamon and honey as well. If you're not a ginger fiend, you might want to start with less.

Ingredients

    8 c. chicken stock
    1 T. EVOO
    2 lbs carrots, chopped
    2 c. chopped onions
    2 chopped apples
    1/2 c. grated ginger
    3 minced garlic cloves
    8 oz 1% Fage yogurt

    1 t. cumin
    1/8 t. nutmeg
    1/8 t. cayenne pepper
    juice of 1 lemon
    S&P to taste

Tips

I like to serve this with a dollop of yogurt and chives and a nice bread like sourdough or chapati. I clean but do not peel the apples or carrots because I need the fiber.


Directions

Saute onions and ginger in olive oil, then add garlic. When the garlic becomes fragrant, add chicken stock, carrots and apples. Bring to boil and simmer til tender, approx. 30 minutes. Off heat, puree with immersion blender. Add the rest of the ingredients, tasting and adjusting.
