Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil , extra virgin
  • Cups Onion , diced
  • 4 Cups Carrots , sliced
  • 4 Cloves Garlic , roughly chopped
  • 2 Cups Potato , diced
  • Cups Vegetable Stock
  • 1 Tablespoon Turmeric , fresh, grated
  • 1 Teaspoon Thyme , fresh
  • 4 Whole Bay Leaf
  • 1 Teaspoon Sea Salt
  • ¼ Teaspoon Black Pepper , freshly cracked
  • 1/4 Cup Pepitas , raw

Instructions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large stock pot over medium heat. Add in the onion, and cook until translucent, about 7 minutes.

  2. Turn the heat up to high, and add the garlic and carrots. Cook for about 5 minutes, until the carrots are slightly caramelized.

  3. Add in the potato, vegetable stock, turmeric, thyme, bay leaves, salt
    and pepper, and bring to a boil, cooking until the potatoes and carrots
    are tender, about 10 minutes.

  4. Fish out the 4 bay leaves, then carefully ladle the soup contents into a
    blender. Cover the blender with a towel, to protect yourself from hot
    splashes, and blend for 30 – 60 seconds until smooth.

  5. Transfer to four bowls, and top with pepitas!
