Here's how to make a hearty heart warming carrot soup.
It can be vegan or not...
Garden carrots make even better soup! but until then...
1 lb of carrots (about 10)
1-2 tbsp grated ginger (depending on how much you love ginger)
1 tsp grated orange peel
1 small onion
peel, scrub, chop, grate...
the compost pile will love the remains~!
then add the veggies to a pot with 4 cups of Veggie or chicken soup broth,
1/2-3/4 cup of orange juice
simmer for 20 minutes or until the veggies are soft...
blend it all up.
if you don't have buttermilk on hand (who does?) you can add 1 tsp lemon juice or vinegar to 1 cup of milk, let it sit for 10 minutes and voila- buttermilk.
or if you want it vegan, dont add any kind of dairy milk.
garnish with parsley!
a good winter or rainy day soup.
