Carrot Orange Soup

CIMG3617

This simple soup looks and tastes like liquid happiness.  Bright flavors and colors can be hard to come by during this time of year and this soup provides a welcome contrast to the mostly earthy fare of fall and winter.  It is quick to make and very inexpensive.  For those of us in California (or Florida) who have year round access to citrus fruit, this is also a very seasonal recipe.   Thank you to Blueberry Mom for the recipe!

You need four ingredients:  carrots, onion, chicken broth, and orange juice.  Roast or saute the vegetables until tender, then puree in a blender.  Add the puree to a pot and thin with the broth.  Add orange juice to taste and season with salt and pepper.  Simmer for a few minutes to let the flavors meld.  Enjoy!
