Pressure Cooker Cream of Carrot Soup
I made this yeaterday for a crowd, there was none left at the end! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Sorry to say that I made a few minor changes, they are as follows:
I did not use heavy cream, (coffee cream was all I had, and I didnt use quite as much as the recipe called for, maybe 2 cups?)
I did not put in the green onion as there was enough with the original chopped onions in base, and I added a little cumin with the curry. I also grated in about a 2 inch knob of ginger root, and only used about 4 cloves of garlic but probably could have been braver and tried using all 8! I was a bit afraid of it being overwhelming.
It pureed beautifully, and was a warm and hearty soup!
Also, if you enjoy a garnish....we swirled some yogurt that had been mixed with a bit of curry on top. It added a nice swirl of colour to the orange hue of the soup. Culinary, and visual art!
It was a great dish, and could be a hearty meal with some rustic bread or croutons.
I keep forgetting to use my pressure cooker, and this soup worked amazingly well in it. Quick and easy.
