Heat the butter in a pan and sweat the onion and garlic for about five minutes until soft and translucent.

Add the carrots and cumin and just cover with vegetable stock – you may not need all of it.

Cook until the carrots are very soft, then drain in a sieve over a bowl to catch the stock.

Place the carrots in a food processor and add a little stock and the orange zest. Blitz until smooth, adding more stock if necessary to make a smooth purée.

Remove from the blender and return to the pan. Season and reheat gently before serving.
