Are you a soup lover? Been trying to be more like my father that he has at least one soup a week, but it is not easy. The concept of having all this pieces of vegetables floating around is not my cup of tea. The other day I was in Zucchini, fab vegetable shop in Nairobi, and the carrots looked super fresh…. and an idea started in my mind.
Beginning of January I started following Teti from Teti’s Flakes, should go and check her blog absolutely fantastic. Anyway going back to the soup idea.. Teti has this Pumpkin and carrot soup with crispy pancetta and fried sage on her blog and I was thinking to make more or less the same. Then in Zucchini I found super fresh organic oranges and the aroma of coriander was all over the fresh herbs section and I had this epiphany what about combining this ingredients together.
And here are the ingredients for this unbelievable soup…carrots, fresh orange juice, orange skin, coriander and in the fridge I found lemon grass that brought out an incredible lemony scent.
I decided that I need it something crunchy for the extra flavor… and here I present you my Scented orange and coriander carrot soup.
