adapted from "The Mediterranean Dish"

Cook time 1 hour / Prep time 25 min

  • 3 pounds carrots, peeled
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoons coarse sea salt
  • 2 shallots minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely grated

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with aluminum foil.

Step 2: Chop the carrots lengthwise and place on the baking sheets. Drizzle with the 4 tablespoons olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake the carrots in a 425-degree oven for 45 minutes turning over the carrots mid-way through roasting. Remove from oven and let cool.

Step 3: Place the shallots, fresh ginger, carrots and 2-3 cups broth in a blender or a food processor. Puree together. Depending on the volume the machine can hold, the mixture may require smoothing in two batches.

Step 4: Transfer the carrot puree into an 8-qt stockpot and place on medium heat. Add the additional broth, coriander, and allspice. Stir to combine. When the soup starts to bubble, turn the heat to medium-low and stir in the milk. Once heated thoroughly, remove from heat.

Step 5: Place soup in serving bowls, garnish with fresh mint, goat cheese and a drizzle of olive oil.
