    Carrot and Apple Soup (Gluten-Free)

    Jefferson Adams


    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Sweet apples and sophisticated spices amplify this otherwise unassuming version of carrot soup. This soup is an excellent way to offer your family or guests the nutritional benefits of fruits and vegetables in one pot. Including the fresh apple creates another layer of texture and complements the freshness of the apples in the soup. Whether you’re using it as a starter to your meal, or enjoying a large bowl to yourself while curled up during these chilling winter months, this soup is satisfying without being overbearing.

    Ingredients:
    1½ pounds peeled and diced carrots
    1 Fuji or Braburn apple peeled and diced, divided
    1½ teaspoons freshly grated ginger
    1 medium diced white onion
    ½ cup apple juice
    3½ cups chicken broth
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
    ¼ teaspoon allspice
    ¼ teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon pepper
    Chopped mint for garnish

    Preparation:
    Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Sauté onions until they begin to sweat and are translucent, about 2 minutes.

    Add chicken broth, ¾ cup apple, ginger, diced carrot. Stir and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and allow to simmer 20-30 minutes, or until carrots are tender when pierced.

    Puree soup in batches in the blender and return to pan. Add apple juice and spices and reheat on low-medium heat. Season with salt and pepper.

    Mix remaining apple with mint in a bowl. Ladle soup into serving bowls and garnish with apple-mint mixture.

    The versatility of green beans to adapt to different flavors makes them an incredible side that compliments almost any meal. This is a beautiful dish that blends ease with elegance. The nuttiness of the almonds contrasts tartness of the cherries and because the beans are blanched, they cook to crisp perfection. This salad makes for an incredible bite.
