Let me give you five excellent reasons why you should try this soup:

  1. It is delicious! Let’s start by just saying that it is absolutely delicious. This soup is creamy and warm, slightly sweet from the carrots and tangy from the ginger and spices. It is a perfect combination of flavours.
  2. It is really good for you! As mentioned above it is packed with nutrients. It has a whole pound of carrots for just two (generous) serves. Carrots are a good source of several vitamins and minerals, especially biotin, potassium, and vitamins A (from beta carotene), K1 (phylloquinone), and B6. (source). We all know that vitamin A is good for our eye health, but vitamin A is also important for our immune function.
  3. It contains ginger! Ginger adds a unique and delicious flavour to this soup. But this is not the only benefit that it provides. Ginger has a very long history of use in various forms of traditional and alternative medicine. It has been used to aid digestion, reduce nausea, and help fight the flu and common cold, to name a few of its purposes. Ginger is high in gingerol, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
  4. It is budget-friendly and easy to make. This comforting carrot and ginger soup is inexpensive and easy to prepare. Carrots in Australia are just $2 per kilogram. So this soup costs $10 or less.
  5. It will help you to lose weight (of course, if this is what you want). This soup will make you feel fuller for longer which will keep your calorie intake at bay without feeling deprived.

Description

This ginger and carrot soup recipe is so simple and yet delicious and nourishing. It is also vegan, low in fat, and packed with fiber to keep you full for longer.


Ingredients

Scale

1/2kg of carrots (apr. 1 pound), cut onto 1 cm pieces

1 medium onion, finely diced 

2 tbsp of finely chopped or grated ginger

2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

2 tbsp of coconut oil (you can olive oil if you prefer)

1 tsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp ground coriander

1/2 tsp garam masala

3 cups of vegetable stock (chicken stock will work too)

200 ml of good quality organic coconut milk (do not use cream)

1 lime, juiced

salt

Fresh coriander and red chilies to serve


Instructions

  1. Heat the coconut oil in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Add onions with a pinch of salt and saute for about 10 minutes or until the onions are very soft and sweet. Make sure not to brown them.
  2. Add the garlic and ginger to the pot and saute for another minute. 
  3. Add spices and saute for another minute.
  4. Add carrots and vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Once the soup is boiling immediately turn down the heat and simmer for about 20 minutes until carrots are really soft and easy to break with a fork.
  5. Once carrots are cooked add coconut milk and lime juice and carefully transfer the soup into the food processor and blend it until the soup is nice and smooth. In a Thermomix it takes me 20 seconds on speed 9.
  6. Season with salt and pepper and garnish with fresh coriander and chillies. Enjoy!
