Type of dish: Side Dish, Soups
Equipment: Immersion blender or blender, cooking pot
- 1 lb carrots, cut into ½ inch thick rounds

- Add the carrots and chicken stock to the soup pot and cook on medium-low to medium heat until carrots softened (a sharp knife easily goes through them when pierced), perhaps 20 minutes or so.
- Once cooked, turn off the heat and add the fresh ginger, dried ginger, cumin, butter, and orange juice.
- Purée with a handheld blender, or if you don’t have one, transfer to a blender and purée.
