#1 Spicy carrot and mandarin soup

OK, let’s start with something fusiony.

Spicy carrot and mandarin soup

Here is a soup that is warm and spicy and very comforting. This recipe brings together the Western technique of cooking carrots with citrus fruits and the Eastern tradition of eating sweet, spiced up soups. Perfect for a formal dinner party or just for a night in with a cheesy Indian movie ;)

To make 2 servings you will need:

2 tbsp sunflower oil

250 g carrots, peeled and finely chopped

2 cm cube fresh ginger, finely chopped

a pinch of fennel seeds

a pinch of ground cinnamon

a pinch of ground cumin

a pinch of ground all spice

a pinch of ground black pepper

salt

juice of one mandarin


Technique:

In a medium size pan, heat the oil and put in the carrots, ginger and fennel seeds. Stir for a few minutes.

Add the ground spices and stir for another 30 seconds.

Season with salt. Add 2-3 cups of hot water and cook until the carrots have softened.

Pour the carrot mixture along with the mandarin juice into a blender and liquidize.

Add some more water if necessary.

Reheat when ready to serve.
