Creamy Carrot Soup with Ginger


  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 8-10 cups 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 sweet onion (medium size), chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated or minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, grated or minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (divided)
  • Fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • 8 carrots (medium-large size), peeled and roughly chopped (approximately 6-7 cups)
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (from a medium, juicy orange)
  • 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk (plus more for serving if desired)

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a large pot or dutch oven over medium heat.
  2. Add the onions and cook until softened, 5 to 8 minutes stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the garlic, fresh ginger, ground ginger and half of the salt then season with fresh ground black pepper to taste. Cook for another minute until fragrant.
  4. Add the carrots to the pot along with the vegetable broth and water. Stir to incorporate and then bring soup to a boil, reduce heat to medium low and cook until carrots are very tender, 20 minutes.
  5. Stir in the orange juice and the remaining salt then puree the soup with an emersion blender in the pot (or blend in batches using a food processor or blender). When the soup is silky smooth (aim for 3-5 minutes with the emersion blender – the smoother the better here!). If you find the consistency of the soup too thick, add 1/2 cup of water at a time while still blending until you reach your desired consistency.
  6. Stir in the coconut milk. Season with salt and pepper, if necessary.
  7. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to four days or freeze for up to six months.
