DIRECTIONS

  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat.
  • Add the shallots, carrots, potato, salt, pepper, and sugar, and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes, until the carrots begin to break down.
  • Add the stock, raise the heat to high, and bring the mixture to a boil.
  • Turn the heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes.
  • Using a food mill, an immersion blender, or an upright blender, puree the mixture until smooth, working in batches if necessary (be careful, mixture is hot).
  • To serve hot, reheat the soup in the saucepan.
  • To serve it cold, refrigerate, covered, for at least 2 hours.
  • Stir in the creme fraiche, then garnish with the chervil and serve.
