Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Add the onion and ginger and saute until the onion is soft but not brown. Add the carrots and saute for a further minute or two, then stir in the stock and bring to the boil. Cover the pot, turn the heat down and simmer for 30 minutes, or until the carrots are very tender. Allow the soup to cool a little and then liquidise it in batches. Return it to a clean pan. Add the orange juice and season to taste.
