Chilled Carrot Soup


    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon coriander seeds
    • 1 tablespoon cumin seeds
    • 1/4 cup freshly sliced ginger
    • 1 onion, sliced
    • 1 jalapeno, sliced
    • 2 cups orange juice
    • 2 cups coconut milk
    • 4 cups chicken stock
    • 1 pound peeled and sliced carrots
    • 1 cup creme fraiche, for garnish
    • 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves, for garnish


  1. In an 8-quart saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the coriander and cumin seeds and saute until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the ginger, onion, and jalapeno and sweat for 4 minutes. Add all liquid ingredients and bring to simmer. Add the carrots and simmer for 2 hours.

    Remove from heat and puree using an immersion blender or regular blender. Strain twice through a fine-mesh sieve, pushing through all the solids with a rubber spatula. Chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

    Garnish with creme fraiche and cilantro and serve.
