Carrot Soup

While I'm going on the soup vibe, here is another super easy soup to keep you warm this winter. Personally, I thought with the addition of Orange Juice to the recipe, the soup would taste more like a juice. The orange works beautifully though, it adds a bit of acidity to the slightly sweet carrot. Give it a whirl!

Ingredients:

500g Carrots, peeled and chopped
2 Cloves Garlic
1 Brown Onion
Juice from half an orange
1 Litre Chicken Stock
200g Sour Cream / Creme Freiche
Salt, Pepper to season
Parsley to Garnish

Method:

Sweat your onion and garlic until soft, without colouring
Add the carrot and saute for a few minutes
Add the stock and simmer the carrots for about 10 - 15 mins, until soft
Blitz the soup in a blender or Bamix
Stir in the Orange Juice and sour cream until dissolved.
Season to taste.
Told you it was easy!

The orange juice really gives it a whole new spin. I didnt think it would work, but apparently it's a classic. Shows you what I know! At least my taste buds knew it tasted good!

It looks a bit too orange for my liking, but I would probably be game enough to try it..

I've always had carrot + orange juice but not carrot soup + orange juice though... wonder if it'll taste much different?

Btw, thanks for linking us at Makan Makan Melbourne!
We're back up and operational XD
