I call this nutrient-dense and AIP compliant soup "Sunshine In a Bowl." I'm sure you'll agree that it is a perfect warming option, especially on a cold and dreary winter day!
Recipe type: Soup
Serves: 4 servings
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or other fat
  • 1 medium fennel bulb, thinly sliced
  • 4 cups sliced carrots (about 1½ pounds)
  • 1 garlic clove, roughly chopped
  • 4 cups bone broth
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ⅓ cup orange juice
  • ¼ cup coconut milk
  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat oil until shimmering. Add fennel and cook until soft and beginning to color (about 5 minutes).
  2. Add carrots and garlic and cook, stirring, just until garlic is fragrant (1 minute).
  3. Add broth and salt. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to simmer.
  4. Cover and simmer for about 20 minutes or until carrots are very soft.
  5. Use an immersion blender or transfer to a canister blender to purée. Stir in orange juice and coconut milk.
  6. Taste and add more salt if desired.
