5 cups sliced and skinned carrots
1 medium onions, chopped finely
3 cups low sodium vegetable broth

Peel and cut into 1/4 inch rounds approximately 5 cups of carrots and add to your crock pot. Chop one onion finely and add to crock. Add broth and orange juice. Add optional ginger if you want a tangy soup. Heat on low for 10-11 hours or high for 4-6 hours. When carrots are tender, blend to a smooth consistency.
