Sick Day for Bugs Bunny

Carrot & Apple Soup

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium sweet onion, chopped
  • 3 medium leeks, chopped
  • 1-2 shallots, sliced
  • 1 1/2  lbs carrots, sliced (don’t peel ’em, waste of time)
  • 1 apple, cored and chopped
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 1/2 tsp fresh ginger, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes, mint for garnish
  • 1/4 tsp each: coriander, turmeric, sea salt, white pepper

Directions:

  1. Heat oil in large saucepan on medium-high until hot. Saute onion, leek and shallots til translucent and slightly browned (10 mins).
  2. Add in carrots and apple. Cover pot, reduce heat to med-low and cook gently until vegetables give up most of their juices (8-10 mins).
  3. Add water, ginger, garlic. Cover and simmer on medium until carrots are very soft, about 30 minutes.
  4. Let soup sit, uncovered, about 20 minutes, to cool slightly. Puree soup in a blender or food processor, if necessary in two batches. (Blender makes a smoother soup, but a hand mixer yields very nice results as well.)
So this sick bunny is stickin’ to the challenge!
