We love soups. They are perfect for autumn and winter time when there is gloomy and cold outside and when you are coming back from a long walk home dreaming about something warm to eat.

Add the broth and orange juice and cook for approximately 20 minutes until the carrots are soft.  Transfer the soup into the  bowl of a food processor , add nutmeg and sour cream and mix until smooth.
