How to Make Vegan Carrot Ginger Soup

To start, wash, peel and chop carrots and ginger. Then, chop onion and garlic. These do not need to be chopped nicely since they will be blended later. The smaller the pieces the faster it will cook!

Then, in a large pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add carrots, ginger, onion and garlic and cook for 10 minutes. Stir frequently to keep from burning.

Add the broth to the pot. Cover and bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower heat to simmer and let cook until carrots are very tender. You should be easily able to pierce them with a fork.

Remove the pot from the heat and blend using an immersion blender until smooth. If you don’t have an immersion blender this can be blended in a blender with extra caution since it is a hot liquid!

Serve immediately and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

Ingredients

  • 4 lbs of carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 inch of fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cups vegetable stock or broth

  3. Add broth, cover and bring to a boil. Lower heat to simmer and let cook until carrots are very tender (it should be easy to pierce them with a fork).
  4. Take the soup off of the heat and using an immersion blender, blend soup until smooth. If you don't have an immersion blender this can be blended in a blender with extra caution since it is a hot liquid!
  5. Serve and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

Notes

  • This soup is delicious as leftovers- store in individual containers to bring to work for the week.
  • For more or less of a kick add more or less ginger. Fresh ginger has a strong taste.
  • If using dry ginger, start with 1/4 tsp and taste before adding more.
