Chilled Carrot Soup With Cumin and Lime

It’s been a bit difficult to decide between warm weather soup and cold weather soup, our temperature has fluctuated so much. I started out having this carrot soup warm the first day and then cold the next day. It worked both ways, so you can eat it whichever way you like depending on how hot or cold you are. There are lots of recipe for carrot soups around, but this one is nice and tangy with the lime juice and cumin is one of my favourite spices, so I really enjoyed this soup. This would be a great cold soup to serve in shot glasses as an appetizer at a 4th of July barbeque. This soup is from Bon Appétit, August 1998.
