MMMmonday - Honey Carrot Soup

Sometimes you want to begin your meal with something just a little sweet and this soup fits the bill perfectly... Although it is a chilled soup it is one that you can eat year round.  This is yet another fabulous recipe that I got from The Chef at

Honey Carrot Soup

4 cups (1 L) vegetable or chicken stock
1 lb (450 g) carrots, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 cup (250 ml) half-and-half or milk (or coconut milk if you are trying to go vegan or just want to add a different taste)
1/4 cup (60 ml) honey
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Chopped parsley for garnish
  1. Combine the stock, carrots, and onion in a pot and bring to a boil over high heat. 
  2. Reduce the heat and simmer covered until the carrots are tender, about 15 minutes. 
  3. Cool to room temperature and puree in an electric blender or food processor.
  4. Stir in the milk, honey, salt, and pepper and refrigerate until chilled.
  5. Serve garnished with chopped parsley. Serves 4 to 6.
