1 ¼ cups of water
3 cups carrots, peeled and sliced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
grated zest of 1 orange
juice of 1 lemon
1 ¼ cups orange juice
For thinning: 1 ¼ cups of water or milk
In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add garlic, orange zest, orange juice and carrots and simmer for about 20 minutes or until the carrots are tender. Then add the lemon juice and turn off the heat. When the mixture has cooled off a bit, blend until mixture is creamy. Reheat, but don’t bring to a boil, and mix in another 1 ¼ of either water or milk.
Your kids will love the color of this fruity soup. Serve with nice crusty bread.
