4 medium organic carrots, peeled and roughly chopped (about 10 oz)
¼ small onion, peeled and roughly diced (about 1.5 oz)
1-2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon Lucini® Premium Select Extra Virgin Olive Oil®
1 3/4 cups low sodium organic vegetable broth

Pinch of white pepper
½ teaspoon sea salt

Heat vessel over low-medium flame on stovetop. Add oil and allow to evenly coat bottom of vessel. Transfer carrots, onions and garlic to vessel. Over a low flame, stir and cover for 3-5 minutes, allowing ingredients to sweat and until onions become translucent and carrots are slightly tender.
Add broth, stir and bring to a boil. Covering again and reducing heat, simmer another 5 minutes.
Transfer vegetables to a blender. Add remaining ingredients and blend until mixture takes on a creamy, smooth consistency. Serve in your favorite soup bowl and enjoy!
