1 pounds organic baby carrots

2 stalks celery minced

1 teaspoons ginger grated

1 shallot minced

2 teaspoons kosher salt

0.5 teaspoons white pepper

1 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoons butter

1 chicken stock

0.25 cup white wine

0.13 cup orange juice


Step 1

Preheat oven to 375. Place carrots on a baking sheet, and drizzle with olive oil. Roast until tender and caramelized (shake the pan about halfway through to evenly roast); about 30-45minutes. Set aside. In a Dutch oven, heat about 1 Tbsp olive oil and the butter.

Step 2

Cook the shallots until tender-about 2-3 minutes.

Step 3

Add the celery and fresh ginger and cook another 2-3 minutes.

Step 4

Season with about 2 tsp. coarse salt and white pepper. Add the wine to the Dutch oven and reduce by half then add the chicken or vegetable stock and the carrots. Bring the soup to a boil, then down to a simmer. Simmer for about 15 minutes.

Step 5

If you have an immersion blender, you can easily puree the carrots. The soup will be very thick.

Step 6

Add the white wine (if using) and then the orange juice. Taste, and adjust seasonings to your liking. Garnish with fresh chives or chervil, if desired.
