"This recipe is one of my favorite things to make" for the winter solstice, says Juli Everett. Not only is the soup delicious, but its ingredients are colorful, warm, and earthy — a perfect way to welcome back the sun.
Sun King Soup
3 Tbsp. real butter (organic, from grass-fed cows recommended)
1 small onion, diced
2 1/2 cups tomatoes, diced
1 cup vegetable broth
3/4 cup orange juice (no pulp)
A few sprigs rosemary
Saute the onion in the butter over low heat. Meanwhile, chop the tomatoes. Add to the onions and cook until the tomatoes become soft. Add broth. Simmer over low heat for about 30 minutes.
Transfer the veggies and broth into a blender and add the orange juice. Puree to a smooth consistency. Return to stove, add rosemary, and simmer for about 5 to 10 more minutes. Add paprika to taste. It's recommended that you serve the soup in warm bowls.
