How long does it take to boil carrots for soup?

Chef's answer
  • Start a saucepan of water to boil.
  • Peel and slice the carrots into 1/4-inch slices on the bias (diagonally).
  • Once the water is boiling, add the carrots and boil for 4 to 5 minutes until just crisp tender (longer if you prefer them to be more tender). Drain.
  • Toss the carrots with the chives, butter and salt.
