Healthy Recipe

This healthy and delicious soup recipe is low fat.

2 tablespoons of olive oil
3 leeks washed and sliced
1 lb carrots, washed, peeled and sliced
5 cups of vegetable stock
Juice of two oranges
Finely grated rind of two oranges
2/3 cup of plain low fat yogurt
Salt and pepper to taste
Chopped flat leaf cilantro to garnish

Place the olive oil in a pan and add the leeks and carrots, stir well until coated with oil. Cover, and cook over low heat for approximately 8 to 10 minutes, or until the vegetables start to soften (don’t let them discolor). Pour the vegetable stock, orange juice, and orange rind over the veggies. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Bring to a boil, then lower heat and cover. Simmer for approximately 40 minute or until the veggies are fork tender. Let the soup cool a little then transfer to a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth. Return soup to pan and add 2 tablespoons of the yogurt. Reheat gently taking care not to let soup boil.

Serve the soup in warm bowls and place a swirl of yogurt and garnish of fresh, flat leaf cilantro leaves and swirled orange peel slivers on the center of each bowl.
