Could you use a piping hot bowl of healthy winter sunshine? (recipe here)
This Sunburst Carrot Soup with Fresh Ginger, Orange, and Carrot Juice is packed with carrots and bursting with antioxidants and flavor. It's cheerful, low fat, and even freezes beautifully. The flavor and color from the fresh carrot juice stirred in at the end add a wonderful brightness (we love our powerful little $50 Waring juicer!), but the soup tastes great even without it.
Adapt my easy recipe to suit your taste: try more fresh ginger, more orange zest, maybe extra garlic—or leave any of them out. A little ground cumin is a very nice addition. However you serve it up, cold and flu season won't stand a chance.
Can't survive on soup alone? You'll find links to all my sweet and savory Less Fuss, More Flavor recipes in the Farmgirl Fare Recipe Index.
