Sweet Potato and Blood Orange Soup

The alluring ruby red of blood orange calls to me while it is available. I love the color and flavor. As I was working on blood orange recipes, I started fighting off a cold. A soup full of vitamins sounded so good. So I worked on this recipe to share with all of you. Watch me make this soup on Fox 4.

Makes 5 servings

Carb 22.1g Protein 1.7g


3 tbsp blood orange olive oil (Olive Tree)

1 red onion

2 cloves garlic

1 tsp ground cardamon

1/2 tsp turmeric

2 medium carrots

2 medium sweet potatoes

4 cups water

1/2 to 1 jalapeño

2 tbsp chicken soup base

Juice of 1 blood orange

Success! You're on the list.


Warm olive oil in a medium soup pot. Peel and chop Onions, potatoes, and carrots. Add onions to soup pot. Sauté until soft. Chop garlic and add to onion. Stir one minute. Add cardamom and turmeric, stir one minute. Add carrots and sweet potatoes to soup pot. Add water. Remove seeds and pith from jalapeño. Depending on how spicy you want your soup, add between either half or a full jalapeño. I like spicy against the sweet. Add soup base, stir. Bring soup to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cover. Cook for 30 minutes. Transfer soup to a blender. Carefully start to blend. It will be hot. Once smooth, add orange juice and blend one more minute. Serve.
