Carrot Ginger Soup

Print Friendly

Now that fall is almost here, I am going to be punching out new soup recipes!  This is the first of many to come this winter.  Soups are great because they are super easy and very budget friendly.  One of my favorite recipes on the blog is my Hearty White Bean Soup.

I used my homemade vegetable broth in this recipe.  So easy to make.  Just save all your vegetable scraps in the freezer and when you have enough, make a ton of broth.  You will never need to buy broth again.  We also added curry to ours, but if you are not a fan, you can just omit the curry.  I thought is made a nice addition though.

Carrot Ginger Soup

6-8 carrots peeled and chopped
1 onion chopped
4 cups vegetable broth
juice of 1 orange
1/2 cup coconut milk (I used the canned full fat milk)
1 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp fresh ginger minced
salt to taste

Throw everything in a crock pot and cook on high for 3-4 hours, or on low for 7-8 hours.  You can cook it in less time, but I believe the longer a soup cooks, the better it gets.  Once the soup is cooked, you can use an immersion blender to puree it.  You can also transfer the mixture to a blender and puree it that way.  Either way works.  We got about 4 servings out of our batch.  Enjoy!

  1. I’m going out today to buy a crockpot so that I can begin making soups you post. This one looks sooooo good, I think I’ll start with this for tonights dinner. Thanks!

  2. Is there anyway to make this without a crock pot? I don’t have the room to store one and I don’t think I would use it much if I bought one. This soup sounds delicious and I have all of the ingredients, just not the crock pot. Please help if you any suggestions!

  3. Hi!
    I have everything but the coconut milk (I do have some shredded coconut).
    Can you think of any suitable substitute?

    Love your blog.

  4. This was great! I just cooked it on the stove for about 40 minutes. I used cream instead of the coconut milk because that was what we had in the house. It was fantastic.

  5. i tried this and it was amazing!!!!!!

    I don’t have a crock-pot and they are not at all known here in Greece. At least I had never heard of them before. What are the features that one should look out for when buying one? I may have to buy on-line…

    • I’m so glad you enjoyed it! Maybe the crock pots are called something else? They are often referred to as slow cookers. Here is the one I have. It’s great to get a larger one http://tinyurl.com/mnv2gv7
      Often, these recipes can be made on the stove top. However, the crock pot lets you leave the house while its cooking. Much more convenient. People often have it running while they sleep.

      • thanks for the link. I think they are just called slow-cookers but there don’t seem to be many options available in the stores.
        :)

  8. love this soup! Thanks for the recipe. It is such a great base also…I made it like this the first time and then after that started experimenting. I’ve added acorn squash, sweet potato, regular potato…whatever I have lying around that needs to be eaten. It also helped bulk it up to make some extra. Great recipe…thanks!

    p.s. When I go to make my grocery list for the week, I usually always browse your sight and get a recipe from you to make..at least once a week. We love your food! Even my two year old!
