If you love carrots and ginger you are going to love this carrot ginger soup recipe!
I spent Thanksgiving with my grandmother this year. She makes the most amazing turkeys. Two very large turkeys. As soon as we were done carving them I threw one of the carcasses in the pot along with a carrot and a few bits of onions and celery and set it to simmer. I was all to happy to head home with a bunch of turkey stock. As we were headed out the door she said she had a bunch of carrots leftover and she proceeded to hand me an entire 5 pound bag of carrots. I fermented about half of them and then made this carrot ginger soup with the rest along with the lovely turkey stock. I froze it in pint sized containers and have been enjoying it every few days since. I figured I should share it with you!
Carrot Ginger Soup Recipe
- 2 Tbsp ghee or coconut oil (where to buy)
- 1 Tbsp turmeric (where to buy)
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 2 inch knob fresh ginger
- 2 onions, chopped
- 5 cloves garlic
- salt to taste
- 2 cups coconut milk (where to buy)
- 1 quart turkey or chicken stock (see my recipe)
- 2 pounds carrots, peeled and roughly chopped into large chunks
- 1 knob of butter, to finish
Heat a large pot over medium-high heat.
Add the ghee and then the turmeric, cinnamon, black pepper, fresh ginger, onions, garlic, and a pinch of salt. Allow to sweat and soften for about 7-10 minutes.
Add the coconut milk and a bit more salt. Allow the coconut milk to come to a boil and then stir in the stock.
Add in the carrots and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down to low and cover the pot. Let the soup cook about 1-2 hours, checking half way to stir everything around a bit.
Once the carrots are tender and somewhat falling apart, blend in batches in a high speed blender or with a stick blender directly in the pot until the soup is very smooth.
Add the pureed soup back into your soup pot and taste for seasoning. Add salt and pepper to your taste. I added in a big knob of butter at the end to finish it off!
