“My 2 year old loved this soup. Can be frozen. Great way to go through some carrots. Light meal for a summer day and hot and warming for a cold day.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup butter
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons grated peeled fresh gingerroot
  • 1 12 lbs carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 6 cups chicken stock or 6 cups vegetable stock
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 12 teaspoon black pepper

Directions

  3. Add gingerroot and cook 2 minutes longer.
  4. Add carrots and stock to onions; heat to boiling over high heat.
  5. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook carrots until tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
