Carrot orange ginger soup is a real surprising combination. When I saw this on yayforfood, I knew immediately I had to make this. I would never have the idea to add orange juice to a soup, but it tastes wonderful with the carrots and the ginger. It gives some freshness and compensates for the more bitter taste of ginger. The taste is fresh, but also sharp. Sweet, but also bitter. A mouthful of tastes so to say.
Also the recipe is very easy to make. The number of ingredients is limited, and as you are mixing up everything at the end, you can choose a rougher cut. As a perfect duo of easy and surprising it fits perfectly in the concept of surprising recipes.
Though orange juice is a very uncommon ingredient for a soup, I used tangerines once with pomegranate for a soup, but this was for a dessert. If you are interested in special soup recipes, you may also be interested in these recipes:
