How to Make John's Carrot Soup
- Melt butter in three quart pot. Add onion and cook until soft, but not brown. Add carrots, broth & rice. Cover and simmer until carrots are soft, about 25 minutes.
- Pour pot ingredients into a blender or food processor and puree. Return to pot and add hot water to bring soup to desired consistency. Add remaining ingredients and heat through-do not boil. (This is the recipe as written. I don't mix in the heavy cream-I just put a little decorative swirl on the to and serve. I don't add cream at all in my bowl!)
- Variations:I serve the soup as written as an appetizer, but sometimes I want to serve it for a meal. In that case, I add small, cooked pasta (ditalini or orzo works well) and sprinkle the top with grated romano cheese before serving!
