Curried Carrot and Mascarpone Soup


Servings: 4


2 shallots, minced
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
Sea salt, to taste
12 ounces (about 5) carrots, peeled and chopped
1 tablespoon Thai red curry paste*
3 1/2 cups chicken stock
1 tub (8 ounces) Wisconsin mascarpone cheese, at room temperature

Cooking Directions:

Place the shallots and garlic in olive oil in a deep saucepan, and lightly salt. Cover and cook gently for 3 to 4 minutes until limp but now brown. Add the carrots and continue to cook, covered, for 10 minutes over medium-low heat. Add the curry paste and chicken stock, and simmer, uncovered, for 1 hour.

Remove the soup from the heat and pour into a blender beaker or food processor bowl; blend until smooth. Return to the heat and bring to a simmer. Whisk in the mascarpone. Serve immediately in soup bowls.

*The soup will have a definite “kick.” Reduce the amount of curry paste if a milder flavor is preferred.
