Rated 3 out of 5 by Angela from Quick soup, went over well Quick soup, good but not my favorite. I found the orange flavor somewhat overpowering, even though I only used 2 oranges (all I had onhand). With three it would have been even moreso, I imagine. Next time I will try it without the orange, maybe a tablespoon or two of OJ concetrate if it needs some sweetening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by K_likestocook from Favorite soup Made this soup for Easter for a family claiming they do not like carrots, and carrot soup....they all went back for seconds and continue to request this soup. Easy to make, we love it cold with a dollop of creme fraiche and a little sprinkle of Himalayan sea salt

Rated 4 out of 5 by NanaBarb from I really enjoyed this soup I had to make some substitutions. I didn't have chicken or vegetable broth, but I had 14 ounces of beef broth, which made it non-vegetarian. I cooked the carrots (1 lb), garlic and onion in butter, added the beef broth and cooked the carrots soft. Put it in my vitamix with 2 oranges and 2 small mandarin oranges. Added juice of 1/2 lemon and milk. It was delicious! ! ! Yummmy! I want to try it again according to the recipe directions and see what it tastes like. Next shopping trip!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MargS from Great soup Agree that three oranges is a little over powering but otherwise this is absolutely delicious and exactly what I was looking for in a carrot ginger soup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jazzie from Easy recipe and quick to make Great recipe and was super quick and easy. I sauted my carrots in coconut oil along with the ginger and onions, and just added all liquid in the container.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Fabius from too much Citrus for me Tried this recipe by the book - the soup tasted original (mixing oranges in a carrot soup is completely new to me) but the slightly bitter citrus taste of the ginger/orange mix was a bit too much for my tastebuds. I didn't finish my portion... I tried it again this time without the oranges and slightly less ginger, and mixed it with my first batch. And now I have excellent carrot soup for the upcoming weeks.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kitch from Three Oranges is Too Much I would only use one orange and see how that goes. It was way too citrus for me. I did incorporate some milk in the end to make it edible. The milk seemed to cut the orange flavor and make it more creamy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dalton from Great Soup This soup was so simple and easy to make. I ended up putting the vegetables in a crock pot and slow cooking it overnight. All I had to do was blend it together, it was already hot.
