more about:

2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
2 tsp. minced garlic
2/3 cup thinly sliced leeks
2/3 cup medium-diced onions
1 Tbs. minced fresh ginger
Kosher salt
1/2 to 1 tsp. smoked paprika
1-3/4 lb. carrots, peeled, cut in half or quartered lengthwise if thick, and sliced 1/4 inch thick
5 cups vegetable broth, preferably homemade OR 2-1/2 cups lower-salt chicken broth diluted with 2-1/2 cups water
3 Tbs. apple cider
1/4 cup heavy cream
1-1/2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup chopped parsley

In a 4- to 5-quart saucepan or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium-low heat. When hot, add the garlic, leeks, onions, and ginger and a pinch of kosher salt. Stir well, cover, reduce the heat to low, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the aromatics are softened, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in 1 tsp. kosher salt and the paprika.

Add the carrots, broth, and cider, stir well, and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are very tender and the soup is full-flavored, 7 to 20 minutes.

Take the pan off the heat and let the soup cool for 5 minutes. Working in batches, puree the soup in a blender (fill the jar no more than half full and vent the lid, topping it with a folded kitchen towel to prevent hot splashes). Wipe the pan clean and put the soup back into the pan.

Add the cream and 1/2 tsp. of the vinegar. Season the soup with salt and pepper. Taste the soup and adjust the seasonings with more salt, pepper, or vinegar as needed.

Ladle into 8 soup bowls and garnish each serving with 1 to 2 tsp. chopped parsley.
