- 4 lbs of carrots, peeled and chopped
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 1 inch of fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
- 1 tbsp garlic, chopped
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 4 cups vegetable broth
- salt and pepper to taste
- Peel and chop carrots and ginger. Chop onion and garlic. These do not need to chopped nicely since they will be blended later. The smaller the pieces the faster it will cook, the bigger and the more time it will take.
- In a large pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add carrots, ginger, onion and garlic. Cook for 10 minutes stirring frequently.
- Add broth, cover and bring to a boil. Lower heat to simmer and let cook until carrots are very tender (it should be easy to pierce them with a fork).
- Take the soup off of the heat and using an immersion blender, blend soup until smooth. If you don't have an immersion blender this can be blended in a blender with extra caution since it is a hot liquid!
- Serve and sprinkle with salt and pepper to your preference.
- This soup is delicious as leftovers.
- For more or less of a kick add more or less ginger.
- If using dry ginger, start with 1/4 tsp and taste before adding more.
