  • ¾ stick unsalted butter

  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped

  • ½ cup chopped fresh ginger

  • 5 cloves garlic, minced

  • 7 cups low-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 ½ pounds carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces

  • 1 cup dry white wine

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or more to taste

  • teaspoon curry powder

  1. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion, ginger, and garlic; sauté until softened, 15 to 20 minutes.

  2. Add broth, carrots, and wine. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer, uncovered, until carrots are tender, about 45 minutes.
