Carrot and Parsley Soup

No ratings yet
This soup is best made with a subtle, delicately flavoured homemade stock. Garnish each serving with cheese and mustard toast: cut half a small French loaf into 8 slices. Toast one side of each slice under the grill, then spread untoasted sides with butter and a little made English mustard. Top each slice with grated Cheddar cheese and toast until cheese is bubbling. Place a slice on top of each bowl of soup and hand remaining bread separately. For a really creamy soup, stir 2 - 3 tablespoons single cream into the soup just before serving.

Ingredients
 

  • 1 lb carrots sliced
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley
  • 1 oz butter
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 pint chicken stock
  • 1/2 pint milk
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Add the carrots and onion and cook gently covered, for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally until softened but not browned.
  • Pour in the chicken stock and bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer gently, covered, for a further 20 minutes.
  • Allow to cool slightly, then press the soup through a sieve or work in a blender until smooth.
  • Return the pureed soup to the rinsed-out pan and stir in the milk and parsley. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Heat the soup through gently for about 5 minutes.
  • Pour the soup into 4 warmed individual soup bowls and serve at once.
