Pumpkin-Spiced Carrot Broth

Delicious Living Staff | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 8 people

From Franklin Becker, executive chef, and Fred Brightman, chef de cuisine, Capitale Restaurant, New York City. Although housed in a fabulously restored 1894 building (and adorned by the world’s largest Tiffany ceiling), it’s Capitale’s food that’s getting all the attention, thanks to longtime culinary partners Becker and Brightman. For a potluck, they’d bring this soup, which combines autumn root vegetables with spices traditionally used in pumpkin pie

  1. In a large pot, sweat carrots, onions, celery root, ginger, and garlic in 3 tablespoons butter at very low heat until soft, about 30–45 minutes. Remove vegetables. Add 2 tablespoons butter and the spices. Cook for 5 minutes, gently toasting spices in butter to “bloom” the flavors. Add orange juice and simmer for 5–10 minutes.
  2. Return vegetables to pot. Add water and chicken stock, cover, and simmer for 1/2 hour. Adjust seasoning with salt and white pepper.
  3. Remove bay leaves and cinnamon sticks. Transfer soup in batches to a blender and purée until smooth. Return to pan to heat through. Serve hot.
