Carrot and Orange Soup

Carrot and Orange Soup

One of my favorite things to make in the winter is soup. There is something about soup that just warms the bones, and it leaves a wonderful aroma in the air that makes the house feel more homey!  This is a delicious recipe that is light and refreshing for winter or summer. If you want to make it more hearty you can also serve it with ground walnuts. I often take this soup to work for my lunch and bring a little container of ground walnuts to sprinkle on top.

This recipe was adapted from a recipe I found on the International Vegetarian Union website.

Here are the ingredients you will need:
2 pounds of sliced carrots
2 tbsp olive oil
2 cups chopped onion
2 large celery stalks, diced
4 cups water
1 1//2 cups fresh orange juice
1 tsp each cumin, coriander, ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 cup soymilk

Start by cooking onion and celery in olive oil on medium heat until transparent.

Add carrots, water, juice and spices and mix everything together.

Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer on medium heat for about 30 minutes or until vegetables reach desired consistency.

Remove from heat, and blend with a hand blender until relatively smooth.

Return to stove and mix in soymilk.

Serve it hot or cold depending on your taste.
