This tasty carrot soup is quick and easy enough to whip up on any weeknight, perfect for sipping from a warm mug on a cozy night in. And after the winter we’ve just endured, who doesn’t need one of those? The soup can easily be made completely vegetarian or vegan – or not – depending on your preferences.

Chef’s note: Fresh basil, lemon or green onions make great garnishes if you have them; I used sliced green onions and a bit of soy sauce.
