Carrot and Orange Soup

If you like carrots and oranges then you'll love this soup. Ideal for when you have a cold with all the vitamin C. Serves 4

15 g butter

i onion, chopped

6 chopped carrots, I prefer to just wash them rather than peel as all the goodness is in the skin,

Grated rind and juice of 1 orange

1 bay leaf

500 ml vegetable stock

Salt and Pepper

Chopped parsley or chives to garnish

Melt the butter in a saucepan and cook the onion and carrots gently until softened.

Add the orange zest, bay leaf and stock and bring to the boil, simmer for 30 minutes.

Remove the bay leaf and add the orange juice and season to taste. Puree in a liquidizer. Reheat gently and serve hot with parsley or chives.

I like a swirl of creme fraiche or yoghurt on top.

Enjoy.
