Carrot and Sweet Potato Soup

Ingredients
2
tablespoons butter or margarine
1/2
cup chopped onion (1 medium)
1 1/2
pounds carrots, peeled and sliced (about 2-1/4 cups)
2
apples (such as Golden Delicious)
3
14 ounce cans chicken broth or vegetable broth
1
cup water
2
medium sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
2
bay leaves
1/8
teaspoon ground allspice
1
tablespoon butter or margarine
1/4
cup orange juice

Directions

  1. In a large Dutch oven melt the 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add onion; cook about 2 minutes or until tender. Stir in carrots; cook for 3 minutes. Peel and chop one of the apples. Stir the chopped apple, broth, the water, sweet potatoes, bay leaves, and allspice into carrot mixture. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  2. Meanwhile, for garnish, finely chop the remaining apple. In a small skillet melt the 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add the finely chopped apple; cook about 5 minutes or until softened. Stir in orange peel. Remove from heat; set aside.
  3. Discard bay leaves. Cool soup slightly. Transfer one-fourth of the soup to a blender. Cover and blend until smooth. Transfer to a large bowl. Repeat with the remaining soup, one-fourth at a time. Return all of the soup to the Dutch oven. Stir in orange juice; simmer about 5 minutes or until heated through. Top each serving with apple-orange peel mixture.
