This is a subtitle for your new post

I am thrilled to introduce to you the wonderfully talented Nicole from MOD Custom Catering  as my guest blogger today! Her and I teamed up recently to put together a few recipe blog posts for you. Nicole is brilliant in the kitchen and while she was cooking up this delicious soup I photographed and styled it. Lucky me I got to enjoy tasting the soup too! I hope you give it a try in your own kitchen soon.



The perfect soup to help reset our Holiday indiscretions and get us on the right foot for the New Year! Packed full of Vitamin C and antioxidants, a bowlful of this vibrant soup is sure to kick-start your immune system and keep you rock star ready all day long!

Ingredients - Servings 3-4

  • 8 carrots
  • 1⁄2 large onion
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp orange zest
  • 3 oranges juiced
  • 2 tbsp fresh ginger
  • 1 1⁄2 cups chicken broth or 1 1⁄2 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 green onions
  • cilantro

Directions

  1. In a medium pot, fry onion, garlic, celery and ginger in olive oil until clear.
  2. Add carrots and sweat for 8-10 minutes.
  3. Add stock and bring to a boil.
  4. Simmer until carrots are cooked and tender.
  5. Add in orange zest and juice.
  6. Blend in blender or use a hand blender, and blend until smooth.
  7. Serve hot with a dollop of yogurt, green onion & cilantro.
  8. For vegan, use vegetable broth and eliminate yogurt

TIPS

  • Freeze extra ginger, then you have some on hand to grate as needed for other dishes - no need to defrost it before using it even!
  • Try leftover soup cold in the morning as a great power-packed smoothie!

Sometimes I travel for work. Sometimes far. Sometimes near. 

Hotels are great. Secure. Nice amenities. No clean up. 
But lately I have been loving booking with AirBnb! 

Last week for a little trip to Toronto I think I stayed at the cutest BNB in the city!!
This place had charm. With lights strung in the main room, vintage furniture filled with vinyl and cool art work and posters that filled the walls. 
I felt at home as soon as I checked in. 

It only made sense to take out my camera and photograph this lovely space.
