00:09 at the ingredients. Sounds interesting.
00:12 It calls for:
00:49 Now, this also has at the end 1/4 cup of
00:52 soy sour cream and we're gonna be using
00:55 that vegetable cooking spray.
00:58 Now Okay. I know somebody said,
01:00 that's a lot of ingredients and it is.
01:02 But this is what makes the soups so good.
01:06 So good. Alright. You're gonna start
01:07 off Curtis, we're get those onions.
01:09 I'll help you get that started
01:10 while you get that oil going. Okay.
01:12 We're gonna chop those onions up
01:13 and put those in that skillet once again.
01:17 You go ahead and get the oil started.
01:19 I'm gonna get this oil going here.
01:20 Umh. You smell that nice smell.
01:22 You smell that ginger there.
01:24 I'm trying to cook with onions and cumin.
01:28 And ginger. And ginger.
01:29 And Curtis, ginger is also a wonderful
01:32 medicinal herb. Yes, it is.
01:33 We can talk a lot about ginger
01:35 for arthritis pain,
01:37 get some ginger tea and put a washcloth in it.
01:40 Let it soak. Put it right there on your knee
01:43 and you maybe go for that.
01:45 Umh. Helps sooth the upset stomach and.
01:47 And good for upset tummies,

01:51 to go ahead and put in that ginger, also there.
01:53 Well, ginger going in there.
01:55 Fresh ginger, fresh ginger.
01:57 I need something small
02:00 How about a spatula.
02:02 There you go. Okay.
02:05 We're gonna stir that around a little bit there
02:07 and you see that smells moving around,
02:09 moving around, turn it down some honey,
02:11 you got it too high. I got a whiff of it.
02:14 We've got a whiff of it. There we go.
02:17 Alright. We're going to sauté that a little bit.
02:19 It actually turns translucent.
02:22 Translucent. The onion itself there,
02:23 you don't want to over burn.
02:25 Remember, you don't want to burn
02:26 that garlic too much, you want to make
02:27 sure that you keep the fire down.
02:29 You smell the ginger? Oh! Yes, I do.
02:30 Love it, love it, love it.
02:32 Now I am going to begin to add in the
02:33 other spices that's going to go with this, alright.
02:35 And that's going to be the chicken
02:37 style seasoning. The cumin.
02:40 That's going to be the cayenne.
02:42 All those are going in right now.
02:46 And keep you from getting yourself. Oh!
02:48 Worked up. Just so that you can't, you know,
02:49 yes stir it around a little bit there
02:51 and then guess what. We are going to end
02:52 all that by putting in one and,
02:55 look at that, look at that, look at that
02:56 Umh, Umh. Pan that out there
02:58 so the camera crew can smell that.
02:59 Smell the whole place.
03:01 They are having a rough time, baby.
03:02 Yes, indeed. Yes, indeed. Now I am going to slowly
03:04 slowly pour that one and a half cup of water. Okay.
03:10 That calmed it down. Didn't it? Yes, it did.
03:12 Alright. It calmed me down too.
03:16 I turn up the fire little bit.
03:17 Turn it up a little bit, turn it up a little bit.
03:19 Now, if you've noticed that I have water also,
03:25 but my water is a kind of orangish color,
03:27 and that's because well, we actually
03:30 steamed those carrots.
03:31 We actually have in there the liquid base
03:35 from the carrots itself.
03:36 So rather than throw it out.
03:37 We kept that water 'cause we're gonna
03:39 need another cup and half of that water also
03:40 as we finish making the soup up.
03:42 So what we're gonna do here is.
03:44 Curtis, that you're gonna let it sit for
03:46 a while honey, it's going to,
03:47 actually we have to let it come to a boil.
03:49 What we are going to do is I am going to
03:50 open up the food processor,
03:52 and we're gonna begin to add in those carrots.
03:55 We already got the carrots steamed
03:56 and ready to go. Streamed and ready to go.
03:58 Okay. Then move this a little bit closer.
04:00 It's going to go into the food processor.
04:02 This is the heavy duty kitchen aid.
04:04 Umh. Umh. And this is kind of food
04:07 processor that I like, okay.
