A recipe I got from Diabetes Forecast, November 2007. A light, healthy way to enjoy a "creamed" soup. Bon appetit!

Great soup! The spices made it especially interesting. The addition of the chopped pistachios made a nice contrast to the creaminess of the soup. We'll be making this one again. Thanks Tiny Chef!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a large 8-quart soup pot over medium heat. Add the carrots, onions, and potatoes. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender but not brown, about 25-30 minutes.
  2. Add broth, cinnamon stick, bay leaf, and thyme. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for 45 minutes. Remove the bay leaf and cinnamon stick.
  3. In a blender or food processor, puree the carrot mixture in batches. Return to the pot and warm over low heat. Add the nutmeg and salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Optional: Swirl in the yogurt and top with pistachios just before serving.
