Cream of Carrot Soup
• 450 gm carrots (chopped)
• 1 large onion (chopped)
• 2 cloves garlic (crushed)
• 1 tsp. olive oil
• 1 1/2 cup stock
• 1/4 cup sour cream
• Salt and pepper to taste
1. Saute the chopped onion and garlic in the oil until transparent.
2. Add the carrots to the stock. Bring to the boil and simmer for about 30 minutes until the carrots are soft. Cool a little and then liquidise until smooth.

Variation: For richer soup, add a swirl of double cream instead of the sour cream, just before serving.
