Spiced Carrot Brain Power Soup

This delicious soup is not only great for the Fall months but is also packed with vitamins and nutrients that help with memory and verbal skills.
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup chopped yellow onion
1 pound large carrots, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch dice (about 2 2/3 cups)
2 1/2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon lemon juice or lemon slices
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup plain yogurt, stirred to loosen
Heat oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and sauté about 2 minutes, stirring. Mix in carrots. Saute a few more minutes to begin softening and browning a bit.
Add broth, cumin, cinnamon, and turmeric. Bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until carrots are very tender, about 20 minutes.
Remove from heat and puree in batches in blender until smooth. Return to pan and stir in honey and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with a drizzle of yogurt and garnish with a lemon wedge.
