Add carrots, garlic, water (or stock) to medium saucepan. Bring the ingredients to a boil over medium heat. Then reduce the heat and let it simmer for 8-9 minutes until the carrotsare soft but not falling apart.
Reserve 1/3 of the soup in a separate saucepan. Add the basil, honey, and lemon into the reserved soup. Then, using a handheld immersion blender or regular blender, purée both saucepans until smooth. Return both mixtures to separate saucepans and slowly reheat.
Ladle the plain carrot mixture into a bowl, then pour in the basil mixture to create a two tone effect. Serves 4
