Potage aux carottes de ma Maman (Maman's carrot soup)

There’s only been one post about soup so far, which is surprising considering how much I love soup!
I love soup all year round – not only in the fall and winter.  My obsession with soup is due to my mom who has always cooked delicious soups. Every Sunday, she would make a big batch and serve it as an appetizer all week.
Here is my all-time favorite:
Carrot Soup
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 ½ cups of diced carrots
  •  2 tbs of butter
  • Few branches of fresh thyme
  • +/- 5 cups of chicken broth
  • ¼ cup of rice
  •  Some cooking cream or sour cream (not necessary) 
  1. Saute the onions, carrots, thyme in a large pot for a few minutes.
  2. Add the rice and the broth.
  3. Bring to a boil over medium heat, and then simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. Blend the soup using a stick hand blender (my mom would tell you a regular blender does a much better job).
  5. When serving, add a spoon full of cream or sour cream.
This soup can be made with beets instead of carrots.
