  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 1 tablespoon of Macellum Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1 chopped stalk celery
  • 2 cloves and 1 chopped garlic

  • 5 cups chopped carrots
  • 2 cups of water
  • 4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth, “no-chicken” broth or vegetable broth
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
1. Heat butter and Macellum Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat until the butter melts. Add onion and celery; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 4 to 6 minutes. Add garlic and thyme (or parsley); cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 10 seconds.
2. Stir in carrots. Add water and broth; bring to a lively simmer over high heat. Reduce heat to maintain a lively simmer and cook until very tender, about 25 minutes.
