Carrot and Orange Soup recipe

Preparation Time: 10 minutes | Cooking Time: 25 minutes

Orange juice and orange zest add a gentle sweet orange flavour to this deliciously savoury carrot soup. Perfect for dinner parties - garnish with a little cream, coriander and a few strips of orange zest for a beautiful starter.


  • 500g carrots
  • 100g potato
  • 100g leeks
  • 1litre vegetable stock
  • 4 tbsp. orange juice
  • 2 strips orange zest
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Peel and dice the carrots and the potato. Finely chop the leeks. Place carrots, potato, leeks, stock and zest into a saucepan. Bring to the boil, reduce to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes until the veggies are tender.

  2. Remove the zest. Blend the soup until smooth using a food processor or hand blender. Return to a clean saucepan and stir in the orange juice. Season to taste.

You could add a little freshly minced ginger to the soup if you like to make it extra zesty and fiery. Recipe serves 4.
