Wow is this great! Would recommend adding the orange juice and zest gradually to achieve a taste that appeals to you. Was a bit overpowering the first time I tried this recipe. Scaled it back and it was perfect (for us). Also added a few TBs sugar. Wanted a cream soup and adding heavy cream to the finished product was wonderful. Simmered it longer so it was reduced by half (approx 1 hr). Took it to my nursing job and had to print the recipe for several co-workers. Will be posting a picture. A really unique and TASTY soup--try it, you'll be glad you did!! THANKS FOR POSTING!
This is fabulous! I used olive oil instead of butter & vegetable stock so it was vegan! I also cheated a smidge & used jarred roasted red peppers (make sure they're in water not vinegar)Wonderfully velvety texture. Made for ZWT3 A-Waltzing Matilda Challenge.
