  3. To prepare the carrot purée: In a stockpot, combine onions, cumin and oil. Sweat onions until translucent. Add carrots and barely cover with water. Add vanilla bean to the carrots and season. Bring to boil and then simmer until tender (about 45 minutes). Strain ½ liquid, then purée in butter with hand blender until smooth. Add salt to taste.
