Orange is so under rated.

Orange Breakfast:

Orange-Carrot Smoothie

  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 2 small oranges, peeled
  • pinch of raw ginger
  • 1/2 c water
  • ice to taste

Orange Lunch:

Raw Vegan Spicy Carrot Soup (inspired by this recipe at beautiful vegan)

  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 1/2 garlic clove
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne
  • 1/4 t garam masala
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 T apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1.25 c water
  • Add all to the Vitamix and blend until smooth.

(Lots of) Orange Dinner:

Roasted Vegetable and Kale Soup from the Front Burner Blog

One nice thing about this menu is the low cost.  Carrots are always cheap, right now oranges are 5/$1 at my store and I picked up several sweet potatoes last week when they were 5lb/$1.

Any other orange in color recipes I should try?

  2. I bought a big bag of tangerines this week and I love them!


  3. So excited citrus season is upon us! I love all the choices of satumas, tangelos, etc.

    I would try some sweet potato curry chips if you have a dehydrator. Yummmy
