2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp butter
1o garlic cloves, peeled and diced
1″ piece of ginger, peeled and diced
1 large onion, peeled and chopped
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp sea salt
2-3 lbs carrots, peeled and chopped
1 lb parsnips, peeled and chopped
2 large apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
4 cups chicken stock
2 cups water

In a large pot, heat olive oil and butter over medium heat. Add garlic and ginger, sautéing for a few minutes, until lightly golden. Add onions, cumin, and sea salt, stirring frequently, until onions start to soften. Add carrots, parsnips and apples and stir. Cook with lid on for 8 to 10 minutes, until carrots start to soften slightly. Add chicken stock and water. Bring to boil. Simmer until carrots are soft enough to mash with fork.

Using an immersion blender, blend soup until smooth and velvety. Add water, if needed, to thin soup to desired consistency.
