A delicious combination of carrot and orange, with a touch of spice from some turmeric and cumin, cooked up into a fabulous soup in the slow cooker.
I can hear you groaning already. Not another soup! Ok, sorry, I know… Too much soup. But this was one of those freak-success recipes. You know, when you have something leftover, you need to use it up, and you think what the heck, I’ll just pop this in the slow cooker and hope for the best?
Then I had an idea for a really interesting addition (the orange juice), which could have meant the whole pot going down the drain. But guess what? It was fabulous! Not just ok, it was blog-worthy.
So then I was stuck. I really wanted to post it, and I couldn’t wait till later because soon it’s going to be too warm for soups. So I had to go with back to back slow cooker soup recipes. Sorry. Well actually, I’m not sorry. ‘Cause it’s good soup! Try it and see.
Aaand I’ve just this minute remembered to google “my” creation. So apparently carrot and orange soup is a thing. As in, a well-known, very popular thing. I promise I had never heard of it before! Arghh, I hate when this happens.
But I can’t honestly say I’m surprised, it’s so good, of course someone would have thought of it before me. Oh well. I think my choice of spices is a little different from most of the other trillion recipes out there…!
