Curry Carrot-ginger Soup

From Michael Lomonaco's Recipe, Porter House, New York
2 tbl unsalted butter (ghee)
2 small onions, cut into small dice
1 stalk celery, cut into small dice
2 tbl curry powder
2 qts organic vegetable broth
3 C fresh carrots, peeled and sliced
2 tbl grated ginger
1 C. dairy-free sour cream
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Put the butter in a large, heavy-bottomed pot and melt it over medium-high heat.  Add the onion and celery, and season with salt and pepper.
Sauté the vegetables until they are softened but not browned, which takes approximately five minutes. Add the curry powder, stir, and cook for two more minutes.
Add the broth to the pot. Bring to a boil over high heat, then lower the heat and let simmer until the vegetables have completely softened, which takes about 10 to 12 minutes. Add the carrots and ginger and simmer for an additional 30 minutes.
Using a blender carefully puree the soup in batches, and then return the soup to the pot over medium heat. Season with salt and pepper.  Stir in dairy-free sour creme. Reheat -- but be careful not to let the soup return to the boil.
