How to make this mouthwatering orange carrot soup

1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the carrots and onion and cook until they begin to soften about 10 minutes. Stir in the garlic, orange zest, and oregano and cook until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Raise the heat to medium-high and stir in the wine.

2. Pour in the broth and water, bring to a boil, and reduce to a gentle simmer. cook until the carrots are tender, about 20 minutes. Turn off the heat and cool 5 minutes.

3 Transfer the soup to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth (don’t fill either a blender or food processor more than two thirds full; work in batches if necessary). Return to the saucepan and season with the salt and pepper. Serve swirled with a heaping teaspoon of sour cream.
