  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric
  • 1/4 cup Pompeian Classic Mediterranean Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup Pompeian White Cooking Wine

Preparation
1. Heat Pompeian Classic Mediterranean Olive Oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onions and cook until tender. Add carrots, sweet potato, bay leaf, orange zest, curry, ginger, Pompeian White Cooking Wine and 4-1/2 cups of the broth. Simmer, uncovered, for 30 min., until vegetables are very tender. Allow to cool slightly. Remove bay leaf and orange zest, then purée soup in batches, using a food processor. Return soup to the pot. If too thick, add remaining 1/2 cup of broth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

2. Preheat oven to 375˚ F. Line a small baking pan with nonstick aluminum foil.

3. Combine turmeric, sugar, ginger, cumin, salt, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Toss almonds with egg whites, then toss with turmeric spice mixture to coat evenly. Place almonds on baking pan, leaving space between them. Bake for 14-15 min., until toasted and dry. Allow almonds to cool, then coarsely chop.

4. To serve, reheat the soup. Ladle each portion into a bowl. Spoon a dollop of yogurt in the center, then sprinkle with some toasted almonds and drizzle with Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
