Spicy Carrot Soup--great as a starter for any meal

Recipe Ingredients for Spicy Carrot Soup

1 T peanut oil
1 medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 T ginger, grated
4 c water
1 1/2 lbs carrots
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1 T lime juice
1 T soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp garam masala

Recipe Directions for Spicy Carrot Soup

Wash carrots and peel if using conventional, non-organic carrots. Cut the carrots in 1″ pieces and set aside. Heat peanut oil in a large, heavy bottomed pot over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the onion, ginger, and garlic. Saute until the onion is soft and translucent, stirring occasionally to keep the garlic from burning. When the onions are soft, add the carrots to the pot and pour in the water. Add the salt, red pepper, soy sauce, garam masala, lime juice and sesame oil? reserving the lime zest. Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce the heat so that the soup stays at an active simmer. Cook this way for 20-30 minutes, until the carrots are easily pierced with a fork and soft. Remove from heat. Using an immersion blender, puree the soup. I like to leave a bit of texture but remove any chunks of solid vegetable. If you want a silkier texture, puree the soup in batches in a conventional blender. When the soup is blended, stir in the lime zest and taste for seasoning. Add salt, if needed, until the carrot flavor is bright. Serve drizzled with cilantro-lime puree.
