Recipe: Sunburst Carrot Soup with Fresh Ginger, Orange, and Carrot Juice

How about a piping hot bowl of healthy winter sunshine? (recipe here)

For the latest installment of soup week on Farmgirl Fare we have Sunburst Carrot Soup with Fresh Ginger, Orange, and Carrot Juice. This cheerful, low fat soup is packed with carrots and bursting with antioxidants and flavor.

It's a big dose of happy for the body and mind and even freezes beautifully. The flavor and color from the fresh carrot juice stirred in at the end add a wonderful brightness, 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.
