1 ts Butter
4 c Carrots, sliced
1 Whole onion, sliced
3 c Chicken stock
1 c Orange juice
1 ts Lemon juice
1/4 ts Hot pepper sauce
1/4 c Plain nonfat yogurt

In a large heavy saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Cook carrots and
onion, covered and stirring twice, for 10 minutes.

Add chicken stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for
about 30 minutes or until carrots are tender.

Transfer the soup in batches to a food processor or blender. Puree until
smooth. Return to the pot, stir in orange and lemon juices, hot pepper

cover and chill for up to 2 days. To serve, swirl a little yogurt into each
bowl and garnish with mint if desired.

NOTES : This unusual soup is from the kitchen of newscaster Catherine Wood
of CJAD - Montreal. She says the recipe may sound a bit bizarre, but is
great tasting and packs a real punch.
