Cream of Carrot Soup / Ree Drummond / The Pioneer Woman

I make soup often during Fall and Winter.
I have many soup recipes and some originals ones.
I just watched an episode of The Pioneer Woman and
Ree Drummond just made this amazing looking Carrot Soup.

3 pounds baby carrots or carrot chunks
8 cups vegetable stock or chicken stock
2 sprigs fresh thyme, plus leaves for garnish
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup heavy cream
Dash of salt and pepper
Combine the carrots, stock and thyme in a pot. Bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Remove from the heat and transfer the soup in two batches to a blender (or you may use an immersion blender). Puree the soup completely, and then stir in the honey and cream. Taste, and then add salt and pepper as needed. Use a little warm broth if the soup needs thinning.

Serve while warm with a few thyme leaves on top.

Peace in the Kitchen!
