Carrot Soup with Ginger
If you love a creamy, hearty, flavor-packed bowl of soup, then my carrot soup with ginger will brighten you up on a cold day. It has a perfect balance of sweet and savoy, and is loaded with healthy ingredients. The soup comes together in less than an hour, including the prep time. Fresh carrots, some onion, celery, a can of cannellini beans, a hint of fresh ginger and a touch of cream blended together until smooth and creamy.
You can make it vegan or dairy-free by swapping the cream for coconut milk and the butter for olive oil.
For those of us who are into meal prep, this carrot soup will keep well and is even better the next day.
