  1. To make the buttermilk, whisk together the whole milk and the lemon juice. Allow the mixture to thicken for 20 minutes.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a 5 qt. stock pot over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and reduce the heat. Sauté until softened.
  3. Place the diced carrots and potato in a steaming basket over 2 cups boiling water. Steam until tender but not soft, about 5-7 minutes. Retain the steaming water.
  4. Working in batches, place the sautéed onions and steamed veggies into a blender. Gradually add the retained steaming water and puree until smooth.
  5. Return the blended mixture to the pot. Add the chicken stock. Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer. Reduce the heat to low and season with salt and pepper. Add the 3,25 % Homogenized Milk.
  6. To serve, ladle the soup into bowls. Garnish with a swirl of buttermilk, fresh parsley and pepper if desired.
