This Creamy Carrot Ginger Soup recipe is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and paleo. A healthy, smooth, and velvety soup that will warm you right up!
This rich, silky-textured soup is such a delicious way to incorporate carrots into your diet, which are loaded with vitamin A. Ginger adds a light touch of heat and compliments the flavor of the carrots exquisitely well. Coconut milk gives the soup a creamy sweetness, in addition to the carrots which get sweeter as they cook.
How to Make Creamy Carrot Ginger Soup
This homemade carrot soup recipe is so simple to make. Start the cooking process with a base of chopped onions and ginger. Then add the carrots, broth, and coconut milk, and simmer until done.
Use a blender to purée the soup at the end and you have a beautifully smooth, thick, and satisfying soup. I use an immersion blender to puree the soup, but you could also transfer the soup to a traditional blender and blend it in batches instead.
Important: Always remember to do these two things when using a traditional blender to blend hot liquids:
- Only fill up the blender until it is halfway full. Any more than that can cause a serious accident.
- Remove the center insert in the lid of your blender to allow the hot steam to escape. Then place your hand on top of the lid with a dish towel, keeping most of the hole covered, to avoid any splashes while the blender is running.
This soup is great for entertaining because it is gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo, and vegan, so it is suitable for many people that are following special diets. Serve it as a delicate appetizer or with warm crusty bread for a light lunch or dinner.
For this Creamy Carrot Ginger Soup recipe, I recommend:
- Thai Kitchen Coconut Milk – I love the taste, texture and consistency of this brand. It adds so much body and richness to dishes like this one.
- KitchenAid Hand Blender – This is the immersion blender I use and love! I have had mine for years and it is one of my favorite kitchen tools. I use it all the time to quickly blend up soups, smoothies and dips.
- Ultra Chef Express Food Chopper – This is the one I have and it is one of my most-used kitchen tools. I use mine all the time to quickly chop up vegetables. I especially love using it to dice onions, because it saves me from all the tears!
