This soup can be enjoyed warm or cold, depending on the time of the year. The flavors mingle the longer they hang out together, so cook it well ahead of time if possible. Feel free to adjust the amount of ginger for a milder or stronger flavor. Cancer-fighting miso helps strengthen the good bacteria in the gut, and adds a little saltiness.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 leek, well rinsed and sliced into rings
  • Sea salt
  • One 2-inch piece fresh ginger, finely grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 pound carrots with ends removed and chopped
  • Juice from 1 orange
  • 2-3 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 tablespoon miso
  • Freshly ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS

In a stockpot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion, leek, and a pinch of sea salt and sauté until the onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Add the ginger and cinnamon and sauté another 5 minutes, stirring constantly.

Add the carrots, orange juice, and enough stock to cover the carrots. Bring to a boil; reduce heat then simmer, covered, until carrots are tender enough to pierce with a fork, about 20 minutes.

Turn off the heat, and purée with an immersion blender. Remove a small amount of the soup (about 1/2 cup) and mix it with the miso in a small bowl. Add miso mixture to the soup and warm on low heat for several minutes. Check a spoonful for seasoning, adding pepper as needed.
