Carrot Ginger Soup

Urska made the Carrot Ginger Soup featured here. K says it was absolutely delicious !.  Thank you for sending me the picture and the link from Simply Recipes .  I love thick soups and plan to make it over the weekend.

Recipe reproduced from Simply Recipes - To serve 4-5 persons


Unsalted butter - 3 tbsp
Carrots - 6-7 large carrots, peeled and sliced thin
White Onion - 2 cups - chopped
Salt - to taste
Ginger - 1 tsp - minced
Stock - 2 cups - either vegetarian or chicken
Water - 2 cups
Orange zest - about 3 large strips
Herbs - parsley, dill, chives or fennel for garnish

Melt butter in a pot over medium heat, cook the onions and carrot with occasional stirring until the onions soften ( takes 5-8 mins)
Do not let either the carrots or the onions brown - sprinkle a teaspoon of salt as they cook to prevent this
Add stock, water, ginger and orange zest
Bring to boil, simmer, cover and cook until carrots soften ( about 20 mins)

Remove the strips of orange zest and discard

Work in small batches.
Pour soup into blender and purée  till completely smooth.  
Take care to fill only 1/3 with the hot liquid and ensure that it does not spill over.

Check for salt and add more if required.

Garnish and serve with your favourite bread.
