Carrot and orange soup (loaded with vitamin c )

lils was coughing like crazy last night, God love her.  I’m a huge fan of an old-school home remedy.  But the thing is  She’s not a fan of milk and honey. So I try to load up the vitamin C instead and soup is a great sneaky way of doing it.  I really believe my carrot and orange soup really does help keep any coughs and colds at bay in the winter. It’s such a handy lunch to make, and is one of the best carrot soups you will ever taste! ( I promise 😉 )  The orange adds a little sweetness and the curry powder is really subtle not overpowering the carrot flavour. I add a little bit of fresh coriander and chili to my own and leave kids as it is.

” I did get a bit of a laugh out of “lils” this morning tho. She was sounding really croaky because of her cough and says to me ” mammy I’m talking in another language now, so if you ask me any thing i will just nod, ok?   

Enjoy the soup guys  I,d love to know how you get on  over on the Facebook page or in the one yummy mummy community group
