Adapted from Traverse Magazine

1 large onion, diced
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, chopped
4 cups peeled and sliced carrots
1 large Idaho potato, peeled, chopped
2 tablespoons ginger root, finely minced (about 2 inches)
4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
Salt to taste
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon turmeric
white pepper to taste
1 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice

In a large pot over low heat, sauté the onions and garlic in olive oil for about 4 minutes, allowing them to sweat but not brown. Add salt, paprika, turmeric and white pepper and cook a few more minutes. Add carrots, potatoes, ginger, broth, and coconut, and simmer until carrots and potatoes are tender, about 20-25 minutes. Puree soup with a hand-held immersion blender and return to pot. Stir in orange juice. Heat through but do not boil. Serves 4.
