Ginger and honey are the secrets that make this the number one requested soup among my friends.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Cups leeks, chopped
  • 3 Tablespoons fresh ginger, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3 Cups carrots, chopped
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 Cups chicken stock or broth
  • 2 Cups water
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Chives, chopped, for garnish

Directions

Melt the butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the leeks, ginger, and garlic and cook until the leeks are soft, about 5 to 6 minutes. Add the carrots, allspice, and cinnamon and stir well to combine. Add the stock and water, raise the heat to high, and bring it to a boil.

Turn the heat down and simmer until the carrots are soft, about 10 to 12 minutes. Skim off any foam that may form. Purée the soup in batches in a blender. Return the soup to the heat and stir in the honey. Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper. Serve garnished with chopped chives.
