Carrot Soup

Chop for quick cooking and combine in pot:

2 lbs. carrots, scrubbed (or peeled, though didn't everyone's mom always say that all the vitamins were in the skin?)
4 cups water (or vegatable broth)
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 medium potato scrubbed or peeled

Bring to boil, cover and simmer until tender (~15 minutes). Let cool. I cool it faster by uncovering and putting the pot into sink filled with cold tap water.

Saute together in pan:

1 Tbs butter
1 cup chopped onion
1-2 cloves garlic
(em>optional1/3 cup chopped almonds or cashews

Puree everything in a blender until smooth adding:

1 heaping tsp preshredded ginger (or 1 Tbs grated fresh ginger sauteed in butter)
1 cup plain yogurt
(optional) dash of sherry

Serve at room temperature (though I also like to eat it slightly warm)

This recipe was ruthlessly taken and adapted from a recipe by Jean Kent found here.
