Carrot Top Soup Recipe
<p>Carrot Top Soup Recipe</p> <p>4 lbs of small to medium carrots with tops and roots <br /> 2 tablespoons butter <br /> 3 tablespoons white rice <br /> 2 large leeks, white parts only <br /> 2 thyme or lemon thyme sprigs <br /> 2 tablespoons chopped dill, parsley, or celery leaves <br /> salt and freshly ground pepper <br /> 6 cups vegetable stock, chicken stock, or water <br /> Pull or pluck the lacy leaves of the carrot greens off their stems. You should have between 2-3 cups, loosely packed. Wash, then chop finely. Grate the carrots or, if you want a more refined-looking soup, finely chop them. Melt the butter in a soup pot. Add the carrot tops and carrots, rice, leeks, thyme, and dill. Cook for several minutes, turning everything a few times, then season with 1 1/2 teaspoons slat and add the stock. Bring to the boil and simmer until the rice is cooked, 16-18 minutes. Taste for salt, season with pepper, and serve.</p>Source: http://www.carrotmuseum.co.uk/carrotops.html (Entered by Nate Olive)
