Ingredients

1 small onion, chopped

24 oz. carrots, peeled and chopped

2 tbsp. olive oil

1 tsp. cumin seeds

1 tsp. coriander seeds

1 tsp. smoked paprika

Fine sea salt, to taste

Black pepper, to taste

Instructions

Using the Electrolux Masterpiece immersion blender and chopper bowl attachment, grind the pistachio. Set aside.

Heat the oil in a medium-sized sauce pan and gently sweat the onion over medium heat for 5 minutes, or until tender and translucent. Add the cumin and coriander and cook for an additional 2 minutes.

Add the chopped carrots and lightly season with salt and pepper, cooking for 2 minutes. Add the stock, bring just to a boil and reduce heat to a low simmer, cooking until the carrots are tender for about 30 minutes.

Remove from heat and cool slightly; transfer to the Electrolux Masterpiece blender and mix until smooth. Strain through a fine mesh sieve, if desired.

To serve, gently heat the soup and adjust consistency and seasoning to taste. Whisk in half of the yogurt. Divide the soup among serving bowls and garnish with remaining yogurt, a pinch of smoked paprika and the ground pistachio.
