Carrot-Ginger Soup with Curried Mascarpone
Serves 4
Diligent seasoning is the key to great soup. Add a pinch of salt and pepper to the pot every time you add another ingredient and you’ll get a deeper, more intense flavor.
Ingredients
  1. 3 tablespoons olive oil
  2. 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  3. 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  4. 1 clove garlic, chopped
  5. 1 Red Delicious apple, peeled and chopped
  6. 1 pound carrots, peeled and chopped
  7. 1 cup dry white wine
  8. 4 cups vegetable broth
  9. Kosher salt, to taste
  10. Ground black pepper, to taste
  11. 4 ounces mascarpone cheese
  12. 4 ounces plain Greek yogurt
  13. 1 tablespoon yellow curry powder
  14. 1 tablespoon honey
  15. 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  16. Pinch five-spice powder
Instructions
  1. Warm olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until soft, then add ginger and garlic and sauté until fragrant.
