Carrot & Ginger Soup

January 3, 2017

What is better than a bowl of nourishing soup for a meal, after the excess over the Christmas break!

Today I made a Carrot and Ginger soup, which is packed with vitamins and nutrients, and the ginger gives it a bit of zing….

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large red onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 5 medium carrots
  • thumb size piece of ginger
  • 400g can of chopped tomatoes
  • 500ml of vegetable stock
  1. Chop your onion, garlic cloves, ginger, and carrots
  2. Heat oil and add onions allowing to colour for about 8 minutes, then add garlic, ginger, and carrots
  3. Allow the vegetables to sweat occasionally stir for approx 5 minutes
  4. Add your tomatoes and stock and bring to the boil, then simmer for 12 minutes
  5. Remove from heat and blend until it is the consistency you like (I prefer mine not totally smooth, as you can see), season and serve – I added some coriander sprinkles onto mine also (I keep in my freezer a selection of frozen herbs to add to soups and curries)
