Recipe: Carrot, orange and ginger soup

Serves 4

    This is great for autumn, perfect as the long nights close in and the temperatures start to drop. Carrot and coriander is a classic combination. I like the addition of orange to provide some acidity, and the ginger for depth of flavour and fragrance. Add a dollop of crème fraiche and sprinkle some toasted flaked almonds on top or serve with crusty French bread to give some crunch.

    Serves 4

    Ingredients

    ● 1 large orange
    ● 25ml olive oil
    ● 1 large onion, sliced
    ● 2 garlic clove, thinly sliced
    ● 450g large carrots, peeled and sliced
    ● 1 thumb-sized knob of ginger, finely chopped
    ● 1 tsp ground coriander
    ● 1.5l vegetable stock
    ● 1 large bunch of fresh coriander, chopped
    ● 4 tbsp crème fraiche (optional)

    Method

    ● Using a peeler, peel several long strips of zest from the orange. Juice it and discard the rest.
    ● Heat the olive oil in a pan on a medium-low heat and gently fry the onion and garlic until softened and beginning to caramelise.
    ● Add the carrots, ginger and orange peel, turn the heat up to medium, and cook for 3-5 minutes until the carrots begin to soften. Stir frequently to ensure the vegetables do not catch on the bottom and burn.
    ● Stir in the ground coriander and season well. Cook for a further 2 minutes.
    ● Add the stock and bring to the boil. Simmer until the vegetables are tender.
    ● Remove from the heat, pick out the orange peel using tongs or a spoon, stir in the orange juice and blend until smooth. Reheat, check seasoning and serve with chopped coriander on top, a drizzle of olive oil and a dollop of crème fraiche (optional).
