  1. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  2. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 1 1/2 pounds large carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
  4. 1 large onion, very thinly sliced
  5. 2 tablespoons finely grated fresh ginger
  6. 4 1/2 cups vegetable stock
  7. 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  8. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  9. 1/4 cup crème fraîche or sour cream
  10. 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped cilantro
  1. In a medium soup pot, melt the butter in the olive oil. Add the sliced carrots, sliced onion and grated ginger, cover and cook over moderately high heat for about 8 minutes, stirring the vegetables occasionally, until just beginning to soften. Add the vegetable stock and nutmeg to the vegetables and season liberally with salt and pepper. Cover and cook the soup over moderate heat until the carrots and onions are very soft, about 10 minutes.
