Orange, Carrot & Ginger Soup

So this week, I seemed to click twice on all the items in my online grocery shopping, therefore  had an abundance of certain vegetables – mainly carrots! So, I thought what better way to use them than in this warming, spicy and deliciously fresh carrot soup! It reminds me of a soup we used to make growing up which was affectionately known as ‘Sunshine Soup’, it was the best! This soup makes you feel like you are warding off the seasonal colds without even trying. Everything in this soup has many health benefits and we couldn’t love its zingy taste more. It is perfect for this fall weather which has just hit us here in New York, making us all pull out our jeans, boots & sweaters (I cannot wait for the colors to start to change – it is without a doubt my favorite season of all! – Especially in NYC)

    This is delicious! Made it last night – had no celery, so substituted another anion and two small apples from the garden. It’s obviously the time of year to accidently end up with too many carrots.Tasty!
