Progresso Broth

Ingredients

  • 2 bags (1 lb each) ready-to-eat baby-cut carrots
  • 2 large onions, chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 5 1/4 cups Progresso™ chicken broth (from two 32-oz cartons)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons grated gingerroot
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • Fresh orange slices, quartered, if desired
  • Fresh Italian parsley, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Spray 4- to 5-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. In cooker, mix carrots, onions, broth and salt.
  • 2
    Cover; cook on Low heat setting 8 to 10 hours.
  • 3
    Pour 4 cups of the soup mixture to blender; add half each of the whipping cream, orange juice, brown sugar, gingerroot and pepper. Cover and blend until smooth; return to cooker. Blend remaining soup mixture with remaining half of ingredients; return to cooker.
  • 4
    Increase heat setting to High. Cover; cook 15 to 20 minutes longer or until hot. Garnish individual servings with an orange quarter and parsley.

  • Use an immersion blender to easily puree this soup right in the slow cooker. It’s a handheld, wand-shaped blender with a rotary blade at one end that you can put right into the soup.
  • Gingerroot, has a very different flavor than ground ginger, and they’re not interchangeable. To prepare the gingerroot for this recipe, simply cut away the thin skin, then grate.
