Re-hydrate the dehydrated carrots, dehydrated onion, and the dehydrated garlic with clean cold or freshly boiled water.
To a good heavy pan, add the olive oil, medium heat.
Add the onions and carrots and cook until softened, around 8
minutes or so, then add the garlic and the oregano, and cook some more
for a few minutes.
Add the vegetable stock and bring to a boil.
Simmer for 10 minutes or until the carrots and onions are cooked through.
Add the orange juice, stir.
Use a blender to mix, in small batches ... allow air to escape from the little hole in the lid so that the heat doesn't cause any explosive problems! Just have your hand over that top little hole to catch any runaway
splashes. If you have a Vitamix blender, you can leave the small cap on as it has ventilation holes.
Blend until smooth, about 45 - 60 seconds.
ENJOY this fantastic good-to-the-last-drop soup ... not only for the sheer taste of it, but the goodness of the beta carotene it contains too! It's my dad's FAVORITE soup that I make!
