Carrot soup with garnish
I recently made carrot soup for a dinner party. It might not sound very exciting, and actually, the soup wasn't all that. It was pretty much straight carrot soup, flavored with fresh chili. But what was truly great were the various toppings! I had put out little bowls of toasted, chopped peanuts, crème fraîche stirred with some lime zest, and crispy slices of fried garlic. With some tasty bread, it made a great meal.
You could try it with this carrot soup - it has oranges and ginger in addition to the carrots, and that would work great with the garnishes.
