"A somewhat spicy, yet very healthy soup to suit your hunger. Garnish this soup with chopped, fresh cilantro, thinly sliced scallions, a dollop of plain yogurt, and additional chopped chile peppers, if you like."

  • Ready In

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, and cook for a few minutes, then add the garlic, and saute for 1 more minutes. Add the carrots, rice, chicken broth, water and salt to the pan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, loosely covered for about 20 minutes, or until the carrots are tender. Stir in the green chilies and lime juice. Set aside to cool slightly.
  2. Puree the soup in small batches, in a blender or food processor. The best way to puree this soup is to place half of the solids into the food processor and add just enough of the broth to liquefy the carrots and rice. Add the rest of the solids, then stir the puree back into the remaining broth. Reheat if necessary. Serve warm.

This soup needs to be thinned out with more cream or chicken stock.

Not as great as I thought it would be. Tasted too strong (lime, carrots and onions? ack!), was very thick and odd colored (a gooey orange-milky color). Gross and not satisfying at all.

I liked this a lot.. I added 12 ounces of carrots instead of 8

This soup is healthy and very flavorful. Its a meal in itself

We were disappointed with this soup. The soup was missing something so we added sugar, no help; we added rice vinegar, no help.
