My Favorite Carrot Soup

Recipe by Gaia22
READY IN: 45mins
SERVES: 9-18
YIELD: 9 cups




  • Heat oil in a large soup pot over medium heat.
  • Saute onions with ginger, cumin, and cayenne until onions are soft, 7 to 10 minutes. Add the garlic when you think there is about 45 secs to 1 minute left to achieve the soft onions [Do not let the garlic burn].
  • Add salt, carrots, potatoes, and broth and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to low. Simmer until vegetables are tender, about 25 minutes.
  • Add the peanut butter.
  • Puree the soup. This is most easily done with a hand-blender right in the pot.
  • Stir in orange juice.
  • Ladle in bowls and garnish if desired.
  • This soup freezes very well in tupperware. I'm sure it will freeze well for many months, however I don't know for sure because mine has never stayed frozen for longer than a month due to being eaten!
