Ingredients

1 tbsp canola oil 15 mL
1 onions, coarsely chopped 200 g
6 carrots, coarsely chopped 600 g
2/3 cup orange juice, freshly squeezed 2 oranges
2 1/2 tbsp gingerroot, coarsely grated 30 g
2 cups chicken broth, low-sodium 500 mL
2 cups water 500 mL
1/4 cup cream 15% [optional] 65 mL
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the soup.

Method

  1. Prepare the vegetables: chop them coarsely.
  2. In a pot, sweat the onion in oil over medium heat for about 3-4 min. Add the carrots, orange juice, coarsely grated ginger, broth and water. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, cover and simmer until the carrots are tender, about 25 min.
  3. Purée the soup in a blender or processor, then pour it back into the pot. Stir in the cream and just warm the soup a few minutes. Adjust the seasoning then serve.

Remarks

The soup keeps up to 7 days in the refrigerator or up to 4 months in the freezer. Cream should not be added before freezing, but later when the soup is reheated.
