Creamy Carrot Soup

The magic of this soup is that it’s creamy without any cream. When the vegetables are blended together, they develop a luxurious silky texture and stay fresh and light with the addition of orange juice. Keep this soup in the fridge and freezer year-round to serve as a light lunch anytime or as part of a bigger meal. Or use leftovers to turn into another dish altogether, like Carrot Pasta with Poppy Seeds. Both chipotle and pimentón deliver the smokiness of roasted chiles, which brings out the earthy sweetness of carrots that orange juice heightens as well. The floral zing of pink pepper ties the sweetness and smokiness together.
