Serves 10 | Prep Time 30 | Cook Time 160


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon coriander seeds
1 tablespoon cumin seeds
1/4 cup freshly sliced ginger
1 onion, sliced
1 jalapeno, sliced
2 cups orange juice
2 cups coconut milk
4 cups chicken stock
1 pound peeled and sliced carrots
1 cup creme fraiche, for garnish
1 cup fresh cilantro leaves, for garnish

In an 8-quart saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the coriander and cumin seeds and saute until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the ginger, onion, and jalapeno and sweat for 4 minutes. Add all liquid ingredients and bring to simmer. Add the carrots and simmer for 2 hours.

Remove from heat and puree using an immersion blender or regular blender. Strain twice through a fine-mesh sieve, pushing through all the solids with a rubber spatula. Chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

Garnish with creme fraiche and cilantro and serve.

After straining, save the solids for use in flavoring mashed potatoes, rice, etc.

As it cooks, the orange flavor will reduce and other flavors become more pronounced. I used a food processor to shred the carrots which gives a bit more texture...and is easier.
