Carrot & Tarragon Soup
|Onions||2 Medium, chopped|
|Garlic||2 Clove (10 gm), minced or pressed|

In a 5-quart kettle over medium-high heat, cook onions and garlic in butter until onions are soft but not browned.
Add carrot slices, broth, tarragon, salt, and pepper.
Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer until carrots are very tender when pierced (about 35 minutes).

Stir in enough orange juice (up to 3/4 cup) to give soup desired consistency.
Heat through; or cover, refrigerate, and serve cold.
