What do I say about the taste of this soup! Your mind fights to identify a distinct taste; is it the sweetness of the carrots? Or then the tanginess of the orange? Wait! it is the sharpness of the ginger. I quite liked this eclectic mix of tastes in this Carrot Soup with Ginger and Orange, and hope you do too.
