Carrot, orange and mint soup

Many of us like carrots but if you are lost as to what to do with another bag of carrots this is a great recipe: orange, carrot and mint soup. Somehow the sweetness of the carrots, the tangy orange juice and the refreshing mint make for a wonderful melange, perfect for the summer.

And all you need are the carrots and orange from the current week’s box. You can leave out the mint and it still works (that’s what we did the first time we made it). But if you don’t already grow mint, then you have to as it simply is the easiest thing to grow! Find a friend who does, simply take a cutting, put it in water, watch the roots grow and pop it in a pot. You don’t want to grow it in the ground unless you want its roots sprawling and overtaking everything else.
