Description

A single large carrot is what gives this soup it's lovely orange hue; it also adds a touch of natural sweetness, while potato gives it heft and body, thanks to the starches. These are simmered along with a leek, garlic clove, and red onion, for the aromatics, until very tender, then pureed with an immersion (or hand) blender until smooth and creamy. Pumpkin seeds (or pepitas) make a crunchy garnish.
