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, Worcestershire 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.

This soup is really good with or without the mint. Very filling soup. We could not finish our main dish or our fruit plate.

Delicious and easy - but the portions are way too small, even for a starter dish. Double it per person for best results.
