This bright soup is super healthy with a flavorful kick. The addition of orange juice intensifies the flavor.
Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the carrots, broth, orange juice, ginger, and lemon juice; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the carrots are tender, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat. Puree with immersion blender or food processor, until very smooth. Return the soup to the saucepan and stir in the coconut milk, salt, and pepper. Reheat the soup over medium heat until hot. Ladle the soup into bowls and serve.
We are so over-sauced, -oiled, -vinegared, and -cheesed. Lightly steam some veggies, with just a touch of sea salt to remember how delicious they can be.

Chef Maria Elia, author of Smashing Plates, says Greece is known for its wealth of cheeses and honeys. Feta and honey are "two simple ingredients that just give so much," she says.
