Combine olive oil, onion in dutch oven or heavy pot over medium high heat. Sprinkle with 1/2 tsp salt and cook, stirring 10 minutes until starting to caramelize. Add garlic and ginger and cook, stirring 2 more minutes, being careful not to burn mixture. Stir in carrots, potato and chicken (or vegetable) stock. Bring to a simmer. Cover and cook until carrots and potato are very tender, about 15-18 minutes. Keep warm.

Meanwhile, in a small saute pan over high heat, lightly toast the pine nuts. Set aside and cool. In a small bowl combine the yogurt (or sour cream), honey, thyme and 1/2 tsp pepper.

Puree the soup with an immersion blender until very smooth (or puree in a regular blender in batches). Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper and serve with a dollop of yogurt (or sour cream) mixture and some pine nuts.
