My 3C soup

3 C because Carrots/ Cilantro / vitamin C (orange juice)!

1 tsp unsalted butter + 1 tsp olive oil

1  red onion, chopped

Salt and pepper

1 pound baby organic, peeled and sliced carrots

1 orange pepper (or yellow/red if you have)

Water (I used 3 cups)

2 tsp minced fresh ciltantro leaves

1 orange juice

Heat oil and butter in a large pot over medium heat until shimmering. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent. Add carrots, pepper,  some cilantro leaves salt and pepper. Cook for 10 minutes. Add boiling water to cover the veggies. Not more than that. Cover and cook for 30/35 minutes.

Puree the mixture in blender until very smooth. Add the rest of cilantro. Mix again. Just before serving add a splash of orange juice. Voilà un plein de vitamin C! Enjoy!

Any questions? Don’t hesitate!
