1 Orange
1 Big onion
5 medium potatoes
8 Carrots
Red Pepper (seeded)
3 tspns salt
teaspoon nutmeg
teaspoon ginger
1tspn crushed garlic
1.5Ltr of water and a bit extra to add later

Method
Cut all ingredients in big sized chunks and boil in the water for 2 hours.
Check to ensure that it is spiced to your taste.
Cool slightly.
Blend till smooth and simmer for another 10 minutes.


Extras: you may add full cream or orly whip to give the soup a creamy and rich taste.

Enjoy!!!

That's awesome, and sans cream extra healthy too. And even vegan! Sounds like a winner all around.
Question: Is the ginger in the recipe supposed to be fresh or dried?

Random thought: I wonder if roasting some of the veggies and adding them to the soup after you blend it would make it even tastier.

I would think roasting them would be great. I am thinking 1/2 pumpkin 1/2 squash (since I don't really care for pumpkin and need to think of some things to do with it it since the pumpkin plants look as if they are doing very well...).
