Carrot and orange soup is the perfect warming combination of sweet carrots with the citrus zing of the orange.

How To Make Carrot and Orange Soup

This simple to make recipe can be made in a soup maker, or, if you don’t have one, a pan on the stove.

You can change up the taste a little more by adding in a few spices such as cumin, chilli, or even a little mixed spice.

What You Need

ingredients carrot and orange soup

Carrots – I don’t bother to peel them, I just give them a good wash and chop them up.
Onion/Garlic 
Potato – again, I don’t peel it. The potato is to thicken up the soup – leave it out if you prefer a thinner soup.
Orange Juice – you can either use orange juice freshly squeezed, or from a carton.
Stock I use vegetable stock, usually from a stock pot.
Optional Spices – you can add in what spices you like the best – I quite like adding in a chopped chilli, or dried chilli flakes. Mixed spices work well, especially for a Christmas soup.

Making It

In a Soup Maker:

Carrot Orange Ninja Soup Maker

If you have a soup maker, you know it is a case of just adding it all to the soup maker jug and pressing the smooth button! 

I have made a similar recipe to this in my Morphy Richards Soup Maker, as well as the Ninja Soup Maker.

If you are using a Morphy Richards Compact Soup Maker remember to reduce the quantities – check the recipe card notes for details.

You can optionally sauté the onions and garlic, depending on the type of soup maker you have.

In A Pan:

Use similar measurements, but you might want to increase them if you want to make a larger quantity. You may need to add a little more stock, just make sure the ingredients are all submerged.

Sauté the onion and garlic first before adding in the remaining ingredients. Bring to the boil before reducing to a simmer for about 25 minutes, or until everything is soft and tender. 

Use a hand blender or processor to blend the soup smooth. Add in extra water or stock if you want to change the consistency.

Carrot and orange soup is a delicious combination of the flavours of sweet and citrussy orange.

Ingredients

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 500g carrots* chopped
  • 1 medium potato (approx. 150g), chopped
  • Optional spices (try cumin, chilli or mixed spices)
  • 300ml fresh orange juice
  • Vegetable stock (to the MAX line for soup makers)
  • Seasoning to taste

Instructions

In A Soup Maker

  1. Optionally sauté the onion and garlic in your soup maker.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients to the soup maker jug. (I added 1 tsp of mixed spices)
  3. Add a stock pot/cube and top up to the MAX line with hot water.
  4. Set off on smooth.
  5. Season according to taste.
  6. Optionally add in some crème fraiche.

In A Pan

  1. Sauté the onion and garlic in a little butter or oil in a pan.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and about 1 litre of vegetable stock.
  3. Bring to the boil before reducing to a simmer for about 25 to 30 minutes.
  4. Blend with a hand blender, or in a food processor (taking care not to burn yourself).
  5. Season according to taste.
  6. Optionally add in some crème fraiche.

Notes

*Carrots - I used 500g of carrots for the Ninja Soup Maker, you can add a little more if you are making it in a pan. In a Ninja Soup Maker this is a medium consistency soup, reduce the amount of carrots or leave out the potato if you prefer a thinner consistency, or add more if you prefer a thicker soup.

To Make In A Morphy Richards Compact Soup Maker


You will need to reduce the quantities to 2/3rds - use the following as approximates, taking care not to overfill your soup maker!

- 350g carrots, chopped

- 1/2 onion + 1 clove garlic, crushed

- 1 small potato, chopped

- 150ml orange juice

- Vegetable stock cube + hot water to MAX line

- Spices - optionally add in your choice of spices; cumin, chilli, mixed spices etc
