This soup is called orange soup, but it has no oranges in it. The first time that I was offered this soup I didn’t know what to expect. It’s called orange because of the color, which it gets from the orange vegetables in it. It works a lot better in Hebrew. Katom is the color orange and Tapuz is the fruit. I hope that you enjoy this Marak Katom!

I chop all the vegetables while I make this soup. I start with the onions and let them cook while I peel and chop the carrots. By the time I get to the pumpkin, all the other vegetables are nicely cooked and it takes only a couple of minutes to finish it up. The vegetables let off liquid, so you shouldn't need to add more oil.
