Carrot Soup with Egg and Rice

No ratings yet
This is a fairly substantial soup, so serve with a light accompaniment such as Melba toast or a selection of crispbreads. If cooking raw rice for this dish, you will need 25 g (1 oz) to provide 75 g (3 oz) of cooked rice. Remove the eggs from the refrigerator 1 hour before using: cold eggs will require a longer time to set.

Ingredients
 

  • 1 1/2 lb new carrots thinly sliced
  • 1 oz margarine or butter
  • 1 pint chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 pint milk
  • 3 oz cooked rice
  • 4 eggs at room temperature
  • 2 spring onions finely chopped
  • 1/4 pint single cream

Instructions

  • Melt the margarine in a saucepan, add the carrots and fry gently for 2 - 3 minutes to soften slightly.
  • Add the chicken stock and sugar and season to taste with salt and
  • pepper. Bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until the carrots are very tender.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and allow mixture to cool slightly, then pour it into the goblet of a blender and work for a few seconds until smooth. Return the puree to the rinsed-out pan and stir in the milk and the cooked rice. Taste and adjust the seasoning, if necessary.
  • Heat the soup gently until hot but not boiling, then break in the eggs and poach them for about 8 minutes or until they are firm enough to be lifted out with a slotted spoon.
  • Spoon an egg into each of 4 warmed soup bowls and pour over the soup. Sprinkle over the spring onions, swirl in the cream and serve the soup at once.
