Combine broccoli, 2 tsp oil, pinch of salt and red pepper on a baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes or until the broccoli is charred a bit. Stir after 15 minutes
While broccoli is baking, bring a large pot filled with water to a boil. Add salt and pasta. Cook pasta to al dente (about 10 - 15 minutes). Drain in a colander over a bowl and reserve about 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid
Heat the remaining oil and the garlic in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook about 2 minutes until the garlic is golden, stirring occasionally. Add in the cream and reserved cooking liquid, stirring constantly with a whisk.
Stir in the feta and continue to stir until feta begins to melt and sauce is thickened.
Add in broccoli, pasta and lemon rind and stir to coat.
Plate the pasta mixture. Sprinkle with black pepper and the flaked sea salt. Serve
Cook onions and carrots until the onion is translucent, stirring occasionally. About 5 - 8 minutes. Do not let them brown.
Sprinkle a teaspoon of salt over the carrots and onions as they cook
Add stock and water, ginger, and orange zest. Bring to a simmer. Cover and cook about 20 minutes or until the carrots are soft.
Remove the strips of orange zest. If you forget and purèe the soup with the zest still in it, the soup may be too bitter.
Purèe the soup in a blender or food processor until completely smooth. Only fill blender bowl a third full of the hot liquid. Keep one hand on the cap of the blender to keep it from popping off. Add more salt to taste.
Ladle into bowls and garnish with chives, parsley, dill or a swirl of heavy cream. A dollop of sour cream also works well.
