2) Add in the garlic and ginger and saute for 2 minutes more, being careful not to burn the mixture. Stir in the carrots, potatoes and the chicken or vegetable stock. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook until carrots and potato is very tender, about 15 to 18 minutes. Keep warm.
3) In a small saute pan, over a high heat, lightly toast the pine nuts and set aside to cool.
4) In a small bowl, combine the yoghurt, honey, thyme and black pepper.
5) With a stick blender, puree the carrot mixture and gradually add in the pine nuts and the yogurt mixture. Adjust seasonings with salt and pepper, to taste, and serve immediately.
Cook's Note: You can prepare the soup 3 or 4 days ahead, refrigerated, and add the nut and yoghurt mixture when ready to serve.
