Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 pounds carrots, peeled and chopped, about 8-10 large carrots
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon parsley, dried
  • ½ teaspoon thyme, dried
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ cup heavy cream

Instructions

  • In a large dutch oven or soup pot, heat butter and olive oil over medium heat. Add the carrots, onions and celery.
  • Cook the veggies, stirring often, until the onions are translucent and the carrots have started to release their juices, about 10 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and cook for another 2 minutes until the garlic is fragrant.
  • Stir in the chicken broth and seasonings.
  • Bring the soup to a bubble, reduce heat to low, partially cover the pot and simmer the soup for 20-25 minutes until the carrots are soft and fork tender.
  • Remove soup from heat and blend until smooth.
  • Stir in heavy cream and serve.

Notes

If the soup is too thick for your liking, add more chicken broth or water ¼ cup at a time, blending after each addition.
