This beautiful orange-colored, nutrient-rich carrot ginger soup is simple enough to serve at any weekday meal, but will also steal the show at your holiday dinner!
Our carrot ginger soup is creamy and delicious, with a light ginger taste that brightens the velvety smooth fresh carrot puree.
Our recipe for carrot ginger soup is easy and only uses a handful of simple ingredients to maintain the clean sweet taste of carrots. We sauté onions, garlic, and fresh-grated ginger before seasoning the base with a small amount of soy sauce and salt and pepper to taste. Once the onions are translucent, we add large slices of carrots and cook until tender. We then add canned coconut milk and blend with a hand-blender resulting in a creamy, rich, satisfying soup.
We love this Carrot Ginger Soup for its thick consistency and ability to highlight any meal.
You can serve this carrot ginger soup alone or with delicious toppings like:
- A drizzle of coconut milk or maple syrup
- Cinnamon ginger spiced pumpkin seeds
- Garam Masala Spiced Chickpeas
- Moroccan Spiced Chickpeas
- Toasted sesame seeds.
- Savory Granola
- Spicy Tempeh Bits
