I had carrots and yautia (a puertorricantuber) and decided to make a soup. As I was thinking how to make it, I decided to grate the carrot, since it doesn't usually pure well when you cook it in pieces. It worked really well. What spices would work well? I decided some freshly grated nutmeg and a little kick from freshly grated ginger. It really worked very well. I love this soup and will make it again. I am not a professional cook, just a retired chemistry teacher who loves to cook. —amgchem

In a large saucepan, sauté the onions and grated carrots in the olive oil, until the vegetables are soft and the onions golden.
Add the cubed yautia, the chicken stock, the grated ginger and nutmeg, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil over medium high heat. Then lower the heat to low and simmer covered for 30-40 minutes.
