Just a hint of orange is all you can taste of the juice. Very nice. I believe I'll use 1/2 cup of onion next time. IT’S A KEEPER.

This soup is really creamy and hearty. Another keeper to add to my collection. Thank you for sharing.

I really wanted to like this one. I did enjoy the first couple of bites, having never tasted Carrot soup before the flavor was interesting. But after the first couple of bites the onion got to be overwhelming. I didn't use a full onion and even some out during the last couple of hours of cooking but it was still too much. The last of the orange juice was very mild.

I won't be making this again. The flavor was just not to my taste.
