Young, just-picked carrots (the kind you can buy with their green tops intact) are infinitely more palatable than the more common supermarket carrots—those oversized roots that come bundled in plastic bags. The latter are perfectly fine for making stocks or more hearty soups, but young carrots are de rigueur for this delicate spring soup.
Here the sweetness of the carrots is tamed with a sprinkle of herbaceous cilantro, a dollop of tangy crème fraîche, and a drizzle of incredibly pungent Garam Masala. Each spoonful of this soup is absolutely enchanting!
