I first sampled this colorful carrot soup at a local Victorian tea room and wouldn't leave until I had the recipe in hand. The chef was kind enough to share it with me so I could enjoy it anytime at home.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 3 cups chopped carrots
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons uncooked long grain rice
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, saute the onion in 2 tablespoons butter. Add the carrots, broth and rice. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 25 minutes or until carrots and rice are tender. Cool slightly.
  2. Transfer to a blender; cover and process until smooth. Return to pan. Add the cream, tomato paste, salt, pepper and remaining butter; heat through.
