  1. 1 Tbsp. canola oil
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 medium leek, chopped
    1 pound peeled carrots, cut in 1/2-inch slices
    1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and chopped
    3 cups fat-free, reduced sodium chicken broth
    Milk or fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth, as desired (optional)
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    3 Tbsp. minced mint, for garnish (optional)


    1. Heat oil in medium Dutch oven or large saucepan over medium-high until hot.
    2. Sauté onion and leek until onion is translucent, 4 minutes.
    3. Mix in carrots and apple. Tightly cover pot, reduce heat and cook gently until vegetables give up most of their juices, 8 to 10 minutes.
    4. Add broth.
    5. Cover and cook until carrots are very soft, about 30 minutes.
    6. Let soup sit, uncovered, about 20 minutes, to cool slightly.
    7. Purée soup in a blender or food processor, if necessary in two batches. (Blender makes a smoother soup.)
    8. If soup is too thick, add milk or broth, as desired.
    9. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
    10. Serve garnished with mint.

The American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) was founded on a simple but radical idea: everyday choices can reduce our chances of getting cancer. AICR was the first organization to focus research on the link between diet and cancer and translate the results into practical information for the public. AICR embraced the mission of changing lives to save lives.
