Spiced Carrot Soup

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 50 minutes
Servings: 4

This warming soup is a snap to prepare when you use the specially designed Cuisinart soup maker and blender. Vadouvan curry powder adds a mildly spicy flavor.


  • 4 thin slices prosciutto
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 6 carrots, about 1 lb. total, peeled, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1 tsp. vadouvan curry powder
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • Greek yogurt for garnish
  • Chopped fresh cilantro for garnish


Preheat an oven to 350°F. Set a wire rack on a baking sheet.

Place the prosciutto on the rack-lined baking sheet and bake until crisp, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.

Meanwhile, in a Cuisinart soup maker and blender over low heat, warm the olive oil. Add the onion and garlic and cook, using the stir function occasionally, until just tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Increase the heat to medium, add the carrots and cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Add the curry powder, salt and pepper and cook, using the stir function occasionally, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Increase the heat to high, add the stock and bring the soup to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer, using the stir function occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Using a towel, hold the lid down and blend on the highest setting until the soup is silky in texture, 1 to 2 minutes.

Pour the soup into warmed bowls. Drizzle with yogurt, top with the crispy prosciutto and sprinkle with cilantro. Serve immediately. Serves 4 to 6.
