Carrot-Lime Soup with Cilantro

This creamy yet cream-free carrot soup is a riff on a recipe by Alice Waters. The carrots’ sweetness is grounded by oniony shallot and herbal cilantro, and boldly accented with fragrant coriander, citrusy lime and spicy chili(es). For a colorful, aromatic flourish, we make a simple relish-like garnish with some of the same ingredients in the soup, then drizzle individual bowlfuls with olive oil to add fruity richness.

FYI- I simmered the soup for about 2 1/2 hrs on low to make the soup. This is a good recipe without the toppings- I am using so I have some soup for the week. The blend of cilantro, carrots and lime shines, but the star is the carrots. I highly recommend. Only difference I made was I used some gelatinous homemade chicken stock.

Delicious hot or cold. Made the recipe several times without changing anything. The topping is amazing. We've put it on scrambled eggs, rice and even added it to grilled cheese sandwiches. Thank you for another amazing recipe!

Great healthy soup, I loved the extra kick of the hot peppers.
