Carrot Pottage with Tarragon

When simplicity truly makes a vegetable shine! This Carrot Pottage with Tarragon is a delicious addition to your seasonal menu. I use specialty carrots, those colorful bunches you find at the market. They give you a beautiful, deep hue and a flavor that’s clean and fresh. And the delicate flavor of tarragon, added at the very end, brings out the earthy carrot flavor beautifully. I’m sure you’ll love this as much as I do!

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons grapeseed oil
  • 2 leeks, trimmed, cleaned and sliced thin
  • 2 lbs specialty carrots (regular carrots works great too), cut into thin coins
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled, left whole
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 can (160 ml) coconut cream (or sub 3/4 cup coconut milk)
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste (I used 1 teaspoon sea salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper)

Instructions

In a large pot, warm the grapeseed oil over medium-high heat. Add the carrots, leeks, garlic, sea salt and pepper. Mix well, reduce the heat to medium and let cook 5-6 minutes. Bring the heat back to medium-high heat and add the vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and let simmer until the carrots are tender, about 6-7 minutes. Remove from the heat, let cool and transfer to a high-speed blender. Add the coconut cream and blend until a smooth consistency is achieved. Remove to a serving bowl or a pot and add the tarragon, while stirring gently. Serve garnished with more fresh tarragon. Bon appétit!

Potage aux carottes et à l’estragon

La simplicité est au rendez-vous dans ce potage aux carottes si simple, mais si goûteux. Pour cette superbe ajout à mon menu de saison, je tente d’utiliser des carottes fraîches du marché ou des superbes carottes multicolores. Ces dernières donnent une teinte profonde au potage et une saveur fraîche et saisonnière. L’ajout de l’estragon, à la toute fin, rehausse superbement la saveur généreuse des carottes. Je suis certaine que vous aimerez!
