This soup tastes gourmet, but is really simple to make. I always make it when I don’t know what to do with my carrots or when I just want something warm and simple for dinner.

1 1/2 TB curry powder
1/2 ts ground cayenne pepper
1/8 ts salt

Easiest option for blending:
After turning stove off carefully place hand blender into medium soup pot. Pulse until soup is smooth and creamy. (Should be pretty thick).
Another option for blending:
Place pot on a trivet next to food processor.
Process soup in the food processor 2 or 3 small batches until soup is smooth and carrots are fully pureed.
Transfer processed soup into a large bowl as you work to make room for more soup in the food processor.
If the soup is too thick, add remaining stock, up to 2 cups, to achieve desired consistency.
