The aroma of orange pleasantly enhances the taste of this soup. You have to use fresh oranges to prepare it; store-bought orange juices will make the soup taste too sour.

If the orange has a too much sour taste, just add a little more cream to balance the taste.

It can be stored for 5 days in the refrigerator and 8 months in the freezer.

Servings: 6

Note that the total cooking time takes into account the time the Instant Pot takes to start cooking,  the cooking and the standing time before releasing pressure.
