Ingredients
  • 2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped sweet onion
  • kosher salt
  • 1 Tbs minced garlic
  • 1 Tbs minced peeled ginger
  • 2 lbs carrots peeled and chopped
  • 1 medium russet potato peeled and chopped
  • 6 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds or pine nuts
  • 1 1/3 cups plain low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp minced fresh thyme
  • freshly ground pepper
Instructions
  1. Combine the olive oil and onion in a Dutch oven or heavy pot over medium-high heat. Sprinkle with salt and cook, stirring, until just starting to caramelize (about 10 minutes).
  2. Add the garlic and ginger and cook, stirring, 2 more minutes, being careful not to burn the mixture.
  3. Stir in the carrots, potato, and stock.
  4. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook until the carrots and potato are very tender, 15-18 minutes. Keep warm
  5. Meanwhile, in a small saute pan over high heat, lightly toast the pine nuts or slivered almonds. Set aside to cool.
  6. In a small bowl, combine yogurt, honey, thyme and 1/2 tsp pepper.
  7. Puree the soup with an immersion blender until very smooth (or puree in a regular blender in batches). Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper and serve with a dollop of the yogurt mixture and some pine nuts or slivered almonds.
