  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 bunch cilantro including roots, finely chopped
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 5 large carrots chopped roughly
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 3 1/2 cups vegetable stock

To Serve

  • 4 Tbs sour cream
  • extra cilantro leaves


  • Prepare the ingredients. Chop the carrots, dice the onions, mince the garlic and chop the roots and half the leaves of the cilantro bunch.
  • Heat olive oil over medium high heat in a large saucepan or dutch oven .
  • Cook onion, garlic and cilantro roots and leaves in a large saucepan or dutch oven.
  • Add carrots and turn heat up and allow to cook for a couple of minutes. Let it get really hot, and the carrots begin to brown.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Deglaze the saucepan with a little stock.
  • Add enough stock (about 3 cups) to cover the ingredients in the pan and cook until the carrots are tender - about 15 minutes.
  • Once the carrots are soft, puree in a blender (or use an immersion/stick blender) so that it is nice and smooth. Add more stock if needed for desired consistency.
  • Check seasoning and adjust if needed.
  • Garnish with sour cream, and a fresh cilantro.
  • Devour.


Substitute vegetable stock for chicken stock – it’s just as good, but won’t be vegetarian
