Funny Misshapen Carrots

We have tons, tons, of carrots in the garden.
All the colors imaginable. All the shapes too!

I took the funny misshapen ones to do this soup.

Carrot and Orange Soup

Carrots (About three good handfuls)
1 beet
1 onion
Vegetable stock
Orange juice
salt and pepper

Cook the onion in a bit of oil. Add the carrots and beet, cook for about 5 minutes. Add about 1/3 cup of orange juice, then the vegetable stock. Let simmer until vegetables are tender. Purée in a blender, then pass through a sieve. Adjust seasoning, add a bit of thyme leaves.

We ate this soup cold with a swirl of yoghurt, delicious.

I have garden envy. I tried this year to grow a veggie patch and it turned into a weed patch :(

Sounds like a good use of less that attractively shaped carrots. Love the idea of putting in a beet.
