17/655 - Carrot soup with orange

Living in the "house of flu" this last couple of weeks has had me craving healthy food and lots of vegetables. This could well be the brightest, happiest looking meal in the book! It certainly made everybody smile when I served it up.

I have made this soup before but I don't remember it tasting this fresh and sweet. Given that I do not always have leeks in the fridge, I may have substituted the leek for an onion last time, which I will never make the mistake of doing again! 

I finished the soup off as Stephanie suggested, topped with orange zest, carrot tops (very interesting flavour!) and a splash of beautiful extra virgin olive oil. Fingers crossed it chases the last of the flu germs away.
