Units Scale
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 medium-large onion, diced
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 pounds of carrots, trimmed, peeled and chopped
  • 2" piece fresh ginger, grated or minced
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce or tamari (gluten-free soy sauce) - For Passover, just add a little more salt to the recipe
  • 6 cups of water or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 tsp salt ( See Note 1)
  • 1/8-1/4 tsp ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 1/4 cups canned full-fat coconut milk, about one 13.5-ounce can (400ml).
  • Unsweetened plain non-dairy milk, or vegetable broth as needed


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot. Add the onions and garlic and cook 3-5 minutes until translucent. Add the carrots, ginger and soy sauce, and cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently
  2. Add the water or vegetable broth, salt, and pepper. Cook, covered, over medium-high heat, until the carrots are very tender, about 40 minutes (time may vary depending on the size of the carrots.  You can reduce cooking time by cutting the carrots smaller)
  3. Let it cool, add the coconut milk and blend with either an immersion blender or a blender until really smooth and creamy
  4. Add more liquid (non-dairy milk, water or vegetable broth), until you achieve the desired consistency for your carrot ginger soup.
  5. For serving suggestion, see Note 2


  1. For Passover swap sesame oil for olive or vegetable oil
  2. If using vegetable broth, you may need to adjust the amount of salt added
  3. Let the soup cool before blending, close the blender's lid tightly, and place a kitchen towel over it before blending.
