1 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp white pepper
2 teaspoons honey or maple syrup
¼ cup yogurt or sour cream ( or vegan yogurt or sour cream)

1/4 teaspoon chili flakes -or more for spicier
1/4 teaspoon salt

Cooking Instructions

1. In a heavy bottom pot, saute onion, cumin seeds and smashed garlic in oil, on medium high heat until golden and tender, about 5-6 minutes, stirring often.

2. Add carrots, chicken stock, salt, white pepper, bay leaves and bring to a vigorous simmer. Cover and simmer on med low heat for 20 minutes or until carrots are easily pierced with the tip of a knife.  Let cool slightly.

3. Make the Chermoula: Toast the spices in dry skillet over medium until fragrant and golden. Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until combined into a paste, but not too smooth. Set aside in a bowl.

4. Blend the soup using an immersion blender or in small batches in a blender until silky smooth.

5. Place back in the pot and stir in sour cream and maple syrup. Adjust salt and spice level. (Keeping in mind Chermoula will add a LOT of flavor.) Keep warm on low heat until serving.

6. Divide among bowls, and add a spoonful of chermoula, swirling it in a circle. Add more yogurt or sour cream if you like.
