Creamy Carrot Soup
This simple soup is not only easy to make, but it is very low in fat and calories as well.
Using a small stock pot, heat olive oil, over a medium-high flame.
Once hot, add garlic, onions, and ginger and sautÃ© until onions begin to soften and turn translucent in color.
Add carrots, vegetable stock and rice, and simmer for 30 minutes or until carrots break apart easily.
Using a blender or food processor, purÃ©e the soup until smooth.
Return the soup to the pot, and heat over a medium flame.
In a small bowl, combine yogurt and flour, and blend until well mixed.
Stir this mixture into the soup, being careful not to bring the soup back to a boil.
Season with salt and pepper, and garnish with a dollop of plain yogurt.
