Carrot & Orange Soup

I’ve been enjoying an orange a day for 10 days for #GoOrange and am feeling great.  I love oranges. Along with soup they are what I look forward to about winter.  So when the beautiful box of oranges from Aussie Oranges arrived on my doorstep I was pleased to see there were two extra.  Perfect.  Enough needed for this different yet delicious, tangy yet tasty and homely yet healthy carrot and orange soup. Yum!

Tip:  Depending on whether you prefer a thicker or thinner soup use more or less of the stock in the recipe.

Nutrition Note:  Carrots and oranges contain valuable antioxidants that help keep the immune system fighting fit and protect the body from sickness and disease, making this soup perfect for keeping winter colds away.

    Hi, I noticed that most of the recipes require leek. May I know what’s the purpose or nutrition value of leek? Any substitute? What is orange peel? is it the skin?
    Thanks and I really would like to try this out!

      Hi Ashley,
      We like to use leek for its flavour and it is also low allergenic and low in natural food chemicals making it less likely to cause food intolerance. You could use onions or spring onions (scallions/shallots) as an alternative. Yes, the orange peel is the skin and the soup is definitely worth a try, its delicious. Enjoy, Jx
