3 cups chicken or vegetable broth, divided
1 large onion, diced

3 medium sweet potatoes peeled & cut into chunks; cooked & drained
1 cup orange juice
Shredded peel of 1 large orange

In a large saucepan, combine 1 cup of the broth with onion and ginger. Cover and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes or until onion is tender.

In a food processor or blender, puree the onion-ginger mixture with carrots, sweet potatoes and orange juice.

When smooth, return to the saucepan and stir in orange peel and as much broth as necessary to achieve the desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper.

Top with a dollop of sour cream or yogurt and sprinkle with sliced green onions.
