Still have those carrots. Decided to have soup seeing on how it is a rainy day out. Soup always makes me feel better on a rainy day. Been having trouble sleeping lately too. Soup might be the stress killer I've been looking for. Here's hoping!

I served this pureed soup over brown rice. I like the texture brown rice gives this slightly sweet savory soup. I cook my brown rice in a boil with rice vinegar and olive oil.
Very Yummy!
