Roasted Carrot Ginger Soup

Something amazing happened in my kitchen. I mean really… really… amazing. The best part is that it can happen in your kitchen too! My recipe for carrot ginger soup is easy enough for the novice cook but still fancy enough for the person that knows their way around the kitchen. It’s the kind of soup that you don’t have to make a fuss about. Just get the best quality ingredients to start and you won’t be disappointed. Kind of reminds me of the butternut squash bisque.  I’m going to have to put that soup back into our meal rotation.

Don’t mind the photos though. I was still learning my way around the camera but trust me that the butternut squash soup recipe is great too. Anyway, this carrot ginger soup is gluten free, vegan and is the kind of soup you can feel good about.

There is really minimal prep involved for this soup recipe. It’s a great as a starter or even or mainstay. I’ve found that once I have a large bowl and I am just stuffed and can’t eat anything else. So if you’re thinking about serving this as an appetizer, serve it in smaller portions than seen here.

One of my absolute favorite things to do is cooking tasty homemade meals for my family. My hope is that your family enjoys this recipe as much as I loved creating it and we enjoyed eating it.

I highly recommend using a high powered food processor or blender to get the carrot ginger to perfect creamy consistency. I used a low powered appliance at first, and it just didn’t do the trick. The second time around, I used my Blendtec and what can I say? Pictures are are worth a thousand words.

      Bradleigh, I seriously had one of those moments where I walked in the store and saw the packaged stuff and thought I can do that at home. What’s great is that it’s so easy to make too.
