2 tbsp. olive oil
2 lb Carrots, peeled, sliced

6 Garlic Cloves, peeled
5 Whole Cloves

Heat oil in large heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add carrots, onion, garlic, and cloves; sauté until onion is translucent, about 8 minutes. Add 3-1/2 cups broth. Cover and simmer until carrots are very soft, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes.

Remove cloves from broth and discard. Puree soup in batches in blender. Return soup to same saucepan. Mix in lemon juice and sugar. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Thin to desired consistency with more broth.
