This super easy Creamy Carrot Ginger Soup is incredibly nourishing and the perfect gut-friendly recipe to add to your weekly rotation!
If you follow me on Instagram you’ll have seen that I made a batch of this super easy carrot ginger soup recently. It’s an old recipe from here on my blog that I decided to revisit and make some tweaks to, so I’m posting it again!
This Carrot Ginger Soup is one of those recipes where you can just throw some ingredients into a pot and call it a day – it’s really quite basic which is why I love it. You can easily add in some extra seasonings, like cumin or cinnamon, to spice it up. I especially love the coconut milk in this soup which gives it that extra rich flavour and texture.
How to Make Creamy Carrot Ginger Soup
All you need to make this soup are carrots, coconut milk, garlic & onion (omit if low FODMAP), turmeric and ginger. You can also add in a medjool date to bring out a touch of sweetness.
- Add all ingredients to pot except medjool date and simmer for about 20 minutes.
- Transfer ingredients to blender with date, or use handheld immersion blender directly in the pot, and blend until creamy.
- Garnish with chopped green onion, cilantro, or chives!
