Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
- 4 medium-large carrots chopped into 1-inch pieces
- 1 medium-large onion chopped into large chunks
- 1 medium-large apple sweet/tart (unpeeled) cored and quartered
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- Kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter divided
- 2 large cloves garlic grated
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger grated
- ½ teaspoon turmeric
- ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon
- ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
- 3 cups vegetable stock
- ½ teaspoon ground sweet paprika
- sour cream to taste, for garnish (optional)
- fresh chives minced for garnish (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place carrots, onions, and apples on a baking sheet and toss with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spread out in an even layer and roast, until tender and starting to turn golden; about 30 minutes; stirring once halfway through. Once they are done remove the skins from the apple. They should peel right off.
Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a medium-sized soup pot over medium heat. Add the garlic, ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt and pepper; cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add the vegetable stock and roasted vegetables, and turn the heat off.
Puree the soup using an immersion blender. If you do not have an immersion blender, you can puree in batches in a regular blender. Pour the soup back to the pot and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Taste. Add more seasonings if desired.
While the soup is coming to a simmer, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon butter and the paprika in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Once melted, cook until the butter starts to smell nutty and turn golden, about 1 minute, whisking constantly.
Ladle the soup into bowls and serve topped with paprika brown butter, sour cream, and chives.
