Note from the Diva
I make this soup at least once a month. It will surprise you and if you want to really make it look super pretty, just swirl in some sour cream on top of the bowl. Everyone always asks for the recipe on this one.



List of Ingredients
1 medium onion, chopped
1 celery rib, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 pound carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces
a 3/4-inch piece fresh gingerroot, peeled and sliced thin
1/8 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes
3 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
1 cup milk

Preparation
In a large heavy saucepan cook onion, celery, and garlic in oil over moderately low heat, stirring, until onion is softened.

Add carrots, gingerroot, red pepper flakes, and broth and simmer, covered, until carrots are very tender, about 45 minutes.

Stir in remaining ingredients and in a blender purée mixture in batches (use caution when blending hot liquids). Return soup to pan and heat over low heat until hot, being careful not to let boil.
