Creamy Roasted Carrot Ginger Soup

Only 5 ingredients! Roasting the carrots brings out their magical nuances; ginger adds a nice little kick. A quick puree in the blender and a finish of cream or coconut milk seals the deal.

The secret? ROAST THOSE CARROTS! Roasting your carrots caramelizes all of those glorious sugars and concentrates its flavors, creating a wonderfully nuanced soup considering how simple the list of ingredients is (for those counting, it’s only 5 ingredients! Well, 8 if you include the olive oil, salt, and pepper).

  • 1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • 2.Place carrots in a large bowl and drizzle one tablespoon of the olive oil over the top. Toss to coat and add 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Toss again. Spread in a single layer on a rimmed cookie sheet and bake, stirring/flipping every 15 minutes or so, until tender and browned in spots, about 40 minutes total. Remove from oven and let cool a bit.
  • 3.While the carrots are cooking, heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil in a large soup pot over medium-low heat. Add the onions and cook until just beginning to brown, about 8 - 10 minutes. Add the ginger and the vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and let simmer for five minutes until ginger is tender. Remove from heat.
  • 4.When both the roasted carrots and the broth have cooled somewhat, add the carrots to the broth. Working with a blender in batches, puree the soup and return it to the pot; or use an immersion blender directly in the pot. Please make sure your soup has cooled enough to safely puree!
  • 5.Place pureed soup over medium heat and return to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and stir in the heavy whipping cream or coconut milk. Taste and add additional salt and pepper if desired. Serve.
