this is my pressure-cooker take on the original moosewood carrot soup recipe. its vegan until served.

5 lbs washed carrots broken into 2-3 pieces each
4 cups vegetable stock (i used 2 veggie boullion cubes)
1.5 tsp salt
4 potatoes, peeled & cubed
4 tablespoons margarine
1 large yellow onion, sliced up
3 cloves garlic
1 cup roasted macadamia nuts
1 small ginger root shaved with vegetable peeler
1 tbsp olive oil

** mix-ins at time of serving - something to make it creamy, any of these:
(soy) milk
sour cream
whipping cream


fry garlic and onions in oil until the onions are clear.
add all remaining ingredients to the pressure cooker and bring to a boil.
add lid to pressure cooker. cook 6 minutes at full pressure.
use cold water to release pressure after 6 minutes.
puree the soup in a food processor or blender

to serve

serve hot or cold.
mix in 1/4 cup of dairy or dairy substitute per bowl at serving time.
photos have minced macadamia nuts on top, that was good too.

according to the USDA database entry that i can find for carrot soup with cream (using milk instead of cream), this should have about 56 calories per cup.
