Carrot Soup With Orange And Lavender

Carrot Soup With Orange And Lavender

Written by Fivos

A flavoursome Carrot Soup With a hint of Orange And Lavender topped with fresh coriander is a wonderful way to enjoy beta-Carotene-rich carrots, especially during the chilly autumn and winter months. These ingredients are added, along with fresh lavender, to create a floral note.

This was one of the delicious soups we made during our Clean Cooking Club Session.

2 small onions, finely chopped
1 tablespoon of chopped ginger
4 tablespoons of chopped cilantro
1 kilo carrots, peeled and cut in medium dice
Zest of an orange
Juice of 1 orange

100 ml of coconut milk or rice milk (if you prefer it creamy)
