Whole Carrot Soup

Whole Carrot Soup from “My Precious”

I can imagine this soup being served in a rural Japanese restaurant that was trying hard to serve posh Western dishes. It may be the strangest recipe I’ve come across this year. It’s from a food gift catalog, opposite the page selling carrots and sesame oil.

Whole Carrot Soup
serves 2

2 carrots
1 packet consommé (bullion)
700 cc water
dash salt
dash black pepper
dash sesame oil

Peel the carrot. Add to a pot with the water and consommé. Simmer over medium heat until done. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle sesame oil over each serving.

Sounds and looks like a recipe that might have appeared in your 4th grade Mother’s Day cookbook. Your offering was Fettucini Garbagio.

Now that’s my kind of recipe! I like your bowl and tablecloth. They match the carrot nicely.
