SPICED CARROT AND ORANGE SOUP

Makes 8 to 10 servings

A warming soup with the cheering color of carrots and the zesty flavor of citrus.

2 pounds carrots, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons unrefined peanut oil or other fragrant nut oil
2 cups chopped onions
2 large celery stalks, diced
4 cups water
1 cups fresh orange juice
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 teaspoon each: ground cumin, coriander, ginger
teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup soymilk, or as needed
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
3 tablespoons finely minced scallion

Reserve and set aside about pound of the carrots.

Heat the oil in a large soup pot. Add the onions and celery and sautee over moderate heat, stirring frequently, until golden. Add the carrots (except for the reserved batch), water, juice, wine, and spices. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer over moderate heat until the vegetables are quite tender, about 30 minutes. Transfer in batches to the container of a food processor or blender and puree until quite smooth.

Return to low heat and stir in enough soymilk to give the soup a medium-thick consistency. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let the soup stand off the heat for several hours before serving.

Just before serving, steam the reserved carrots until crisp-tender and stir into the soup along with the parsley and scallion. Taste to correct consistency and seasonings before serving.
