Carrot-Coconut Soup

¼ cup (½ stick) unsalted butter
1 pound carrots, peeled, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
5-oz. can unsweetened coconut milk
2 tablespoons Thai-style chili sauce plus more for serving
Fresh cilantro leaves (for serving)

Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat.
Add carrots and onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring often, until carrots are softened, 15–20 minutes.
Stir in broth, coconut milk, and 2 Tbsp. chili sauce.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are very soft and liquid is slightly reduced, 40–45 minutes.
Let soup cool slightly, then purée in a blender until smooth.
Reheat in a clean saucepan, thinning with water to desired consistency; season with salt and pepper.
Divide soup among bowls, drizzle with chili sauce, and top with cilantro.

Do Ahead: Soup can be made 3 days ahead. Let cool; cover and chill.
