Spice your day up with a warming bowl of Carrot ginger soup. Loaded with antioxidants to brighten up your skin and anti-inflammatory properties of ginger, this soup will get your blood flowing. The combo of the delicate sweetness of carrots, earthy curry and spicy ginger will get you hooked immediately.

Prep Time: 10 min

Cooking Time: 20 min (if using pressure cooker set timer for 8 min)

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 600 gr cleaned carrots sliced
  • large thumb size ginger (3 tbs finally chopped)
  • 1 onion
  • 3 tsp medium curry powder (heaped)
  • 1/4 tsp medium/hot chilli powder
  • 2 cups water (if using pressure cooker 1 cup only)
  • 1 cup almond milk unsweetened
  • 10 fresh mint leaves

Instructions

Put the onions, carrots, ginger, spices and water into a pot and bring to a boil.

Reduce the heat and cook for about 20 min until carrots are soft. You may need to add bit more water if carrots start to stick to the bottom.

Then add almond milk and blend the soup with an immersion blender until smooth.

At the end, add finely chopped fresh mint leaves and let the carrot ginger soup rest for 5 – 10 min before serving. This will allow the mint aroma to infuse in the entire soup.

 

Note: I love to make this soup in a pressure cooker to save time.
