Carrot Soup With Lime and Chiles

“"This soup contains a wealth of cold-healing foods, from garlic to carrots to chicken broth." - Adapted from the Prevention Magazine book, "Natural Healing Guide 2002" If you'd like you can do as the recipe originally stated and use uncooked instant brown rice- just add an extra cup of water to the recipe and put the rice in with the carrots. This would be easy to make vegetarian by using vegetable broth rather than chicken.”

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add the onion and sauté for about 3 minutes, until transparent.
  3. Add the garlic and sauté one minute longer.
  4. Add the carrots, broth and salt.
  5. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low.
  6. Simmer, partially covered for about 20 minutes, or until carrots are tender.
  7. Stir in the chiles, lime juice and rice.
  8. Cool and purée the soup with a food processor, blender or immersion blender.

  10. Reheat, if necessary and serve warm.
