Ingredients

4 carrots, cut into 3 cm pieces 400 g
1/2 onions, cut into 3 cm pieces 100 g
4 tsp butter, unsalted 18 g
1 2/3 cup vegetable broth, low-sodium 420 mL
1 1/2 cup milk, partly skimmed, 2% 375 mL
2 1/2 tbsp fresh mint, chopped 8 g
3 drops Tabasco sauce
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]
1 tbsp yogurt, plain, 2% [optional] 16 g

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the soup.

Method

  1. Prepare the carrots and onions. Peel and cut into 3 cm pieces.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the carrots and onions and cook 5 min, with occasional stirring. Add the broth and milk, bring to a boil, then lower the heat. Cover and simmer about 15 min, until the vegetables are soft. Purée in a blender until smooth. Add the chopped mint, Tabasco sauce, salt, and pepper.
  3. Ladle the soup into bowls. Garnish each with a dollop of yogurt and fresh mint leaves, then serve.

Remarks

The soup keeps up to 7 days in the refrigerator or up to 4 months in the freezer.

Really delicious, creamy and with a lovely taste from the mint: not too overtly minty, just a nice tang. Cheap, easy and tasty - bravo.
