cooking: carrot soup with cumin and honey

one of my biggest pet peeves is canned soup
maybe it's because campbells discontinued their garden medley soup which just so happened to be one of my cravings while i was pregnant with aspen
now nothing tastes as good... unless its home made
on this particular fall evening i made cumin and carrot soup with a tad bit of honey
 large dice a small white onion
 cut 2 pounds of carrots into 1 inch pieces
i don't peel my carrots because i don't like monotonous punishment so i just make sure to wash and scrub them REAL good
 soften your onion in a large stock pot with some olive oil
 add you carrots
 and cook with the lid on for 10 minutes
 add 4 cups of broth
you can use chicken or veg
organic was on sale this week.. WORD!
 bring to a boil and then let your vegs simmer until the carrots are soft
 now you're going to bring on the flavor!
 season with cumin, cayenne pepper and salt
be sure to taste as you season
i added a bit too much cumin to my liking because i was too heavy handed
using an immersion blender, puree away!
 add a swirl of honey and adjust to your liking

garnish with some carrot peel
 and slurp this soup on up!
