Carrot, orange and ginger soup

Soup Serves 4 40 min
Sweet orange and punchy ginger play off against each other beautifully in this flavourful vegetarian carrot soup. It's especially good served with a dollop of tangy yoghurt and lots of fresh coriander.

  • 2 tbsp oil for frying, e.g. vegetable or sunflower
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 900g carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 litre veg stock
  • juice of 2-3 oranges (you need about 150ml)
  • plain yoghurt and a few fresh coriander or fresh parsley leaves, chopped, to serve (optional)
  • salt and pepper
