    Default Carrot Soup - 1 point per serving

    This is a recipe my dad made a lot when I was living at home, and it's very delicious and comforting - and great when you've got a cold.

    Carrot Soup
    makes 6 servings, 1 point each

    1 lb carrots, peeled & chopped *
    1 medium onion, peeled & chopped
    1 large potato, peeled & chopped
    Juice from 1 orange
    1 pinch or 2 orange zest
    2 cans vegetarian vegetable broth
    Parsley or Chervil to taste
    Salt & Pepper to taste
    Scallions for garnish

    In a large saucepan or pot, sautee the chopped onion and potato in the olive oil and a small amount of the veg broth until the onions get transparent and the potatoes get a little soft.

    Add the chopped carrots, the rest of the vegetable broth, and the juice from one orange as well as some orange zest.

    Add the parsley/chervil, salt, and pepper and simmer for about 30-40 minutes until all ingredients are soft.

    Use a blender or immersion blender (immersion blenders work great for this) to puree the soup until the texture is smooth and creamy without any large chunks.

    Garnish with chopped scallions & enjoy!

    *TIP:* Use baby carrots to save yourself a step - just chop them into smaller pieces and they're all set.

    What if you like it chunky?

    Then you can be a rebel and ignore the part of the recipe that says to blend it until smooth.
