Directions:
1. Saute the carrots, onion, and salt in melted butter over medium heat until softened (let them sweat, but don't brown), about 10 minutes.

2. Add the ginger, orange zest, stock, and water. Bring to a boil, then simmer for about 20 minutes (or until carrots are tender).

3. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup to desired consistency (alternatively, you may do this in batches in a traditional blender).

4. Check seasoning and add salt if needed. Garnish with green onions or herbs, if desired. If you want the soup chilled, refrigerate for about two hours before serving.
