  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large white onion chopped
  • 1/2 inch fresh ginger minced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground Cayenne pepper
  • 3 cups carrots chopped
  • 1 large Limoneira® lemon zest & juice
  • 3 cups chicken stock or vegetable broth
  • Salt to taste
  • 4 tablespoons sour cream to serve


  • Heat the olive oil in a large pot over a medium-high setting.
  • Sauté the onions for about 5 minutes, until fragrant and softened.
  • Add the ginger and garlic, and continue to sauté for another 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the curry powder and Cayenne pepper, and cook for another minute or two.
  • Add the chopped carrots to the pot, along with the lemon zest and juice, and chicken or vegetable stock.
  • Reduce the heat to a low setting, cover the pot, and simmer for about 20 minutes. The carrots should be very tender at this point.
  • Puree the soup in batches in a blender, or use an immersion blender.
  • Return to the pot to reheat before serving. If it’s too thick for your taste, you can add a little more vegetable or chicken stock at this point.
  • Top with a dollop of sour cream to serve.
