Robyn Larabee’s bright and creamy carrot soup is her young son’s very favorite. “He requests it often,” she writes from Lucknow, Ontario. “I like that it’s fast, easy and makes a perfect amount for the two of us when my husband is away at work.”
In a small saucepan, saute carrots and onion in butter until crisp-tender. Add broth and ginger. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until carrots are very tender. Cool slightly.
Puree soup in a blender; return to the pan. Stir in buttermilk; heat through (do not boil).
