Everyone loves a pun. You may roll your eyes, but you know it’s true. Three-Carrot Soup was a title I just couldn’t resist. It is, as you would guess, a recipe is for the carrot lover. As J calls it, a “super beta-carotene see-in-the-dark soup”. A riff on the Tuscan carrot top soup, it has the classic diced carrots and leafy carrot tops, but this version uses an extra layer: carrot juice.
One thing I love about this soup is that it is thrifty, in that it uses the carrot tops. My Papou would be very proud (that’s Greek for grandfather, in case you didn’t watch Full House growing up). He always made sure whatever came home from the market, made it to the dinner table. Once, he was attacked and mugged on the street by two men who had followed him from the grocery store. Afterwards he got up, loaded his dropped fruit into his bag, and picked up a package of Danish the attackers had dropped, and took it home for next morning’s breakfast. My grandmother would tell that story and shake her head, and he would nod proudly and smile a little.
