Carrot Orange Spring Soup

Carrot Orange Spring Soup

Peel and chop the potato, carrots and the onion.

Add the oil in a saucepan over a high heat, add the chopped vegetables and cook for 10 minutes.

Check and stir regularly.

Using a cheese grater, grate the zest off the orange into a small bowl.

Add the zest to the pan with the vegetables. Put the lid on and cook for 10 more minutes, stirring occasionally.

If you’d like to add wine now ‘s the time.

Add the stock or water and bring up to a simmer, then put the lid back on the pan and leave to simmer gently. After 45 minutes, test that the carrots are really soft by poking them with a knife or skewer. Turn off the heat. Carefully ladle the soup into a food processor or use a stick blender.  Whizz the soup until it is smooth.

Cut the orange in half, squeeze the juice from one half and add to the soup.

Return the soup to the pan, heat it gently and season to taste.

Enjoy with a glass of citrusy white wine.

xoxo,

Chelf

    I like the idea of putting orange in here. I’ve never tried that in soup before, but it would be delicious!

    I never would’ve thought to use orange in a savory dish, but this definitely gives the soup a springy vibe. YUM!

    I’m a huge fan of carrot and potato soup, but I’ve never dreamed of adding orange! I can see how it would really add a zing of flavour. I’m definitely keen to give this recipe a try!

    Thanks for sharing your carrot soup recipe. Perfect during cold nights. And eating lots of carrots helps to smoothen our skin, like baby smooth 🙂

    I am not a big fan of cooked carrots. But this does look like a way I might try them out.

      I’m not a big fan of cooked carrots either. I love the earthy taste of raw carrots and when carrots are cooked they take on a gross (to me) and kinda flavorless (to me) consistency. I have not made this recipe yet, but I have found that carrot soup in general tends to keep the flavor of the carrot, and you don’t get the gross texture because it’s turned into SOUP!

        That’s true! And the addition of orange takes it to another level!

    I love it. Carrots might be my favorite vegetable. I mean I am a big fan of veggies so I’m not sure. But they’re definitely up there. Anyway I love that it’s vegan too! I pinned it..one of my kiddos is sick and barely eating right now, so I think I may just try this TODAY. Thank you!
