1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1 medium onion, chopped

2 medium carrots, peeled and cut into 1/4″

Although I used a Pressure Cooker to make my Soup, you may cook on stove-top or crock pot for altered use. Enjoy this easy, heart-healthy recipe!

  • Use butter or olive oil to sauté onion, about 1 to 2 minutes, until onions start to soften.
