Yields 6 servings 

  • 1 pound carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces (2 1/4 cups)
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 3/4 cups (14 fl ounces) reduced-sodium fat-free chicken broth
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne

Chilled Florida Wildflower Honey and Carrot Soup

Combine all ingredients except 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice in a 3-quart heavy saucepan and bring to a boil over moderate heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until carrots are tender, 30 to 40 minutes. Purée soup in 2 batches in a blender (use caution when blending hot liquids) until very smooth, then chill soup quickly, stirring occasionally, in a metal bowl set in a larger bowl of ice and cold water, about 30 minutes. (Alternatively, cool soup, uncovered, 30 to 40 minutes, then chill, covered, until cold, about 4 hours.) Stir in remaining 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice and salt to taste. Divide soup among 6 bowls with a ladle. Float a lemon slice on top of each serving, then drizzle with honey and serve
