The best ever creamy vegan carrot ginger soup. This light and refreshing soup is zesty, tangy and ultra fresh tasting. Simple and so delicious.
I’m in love with the fresh taste of this soup! It really bursts with freshness and flavor.
I was a little sceptical about trying one of the ingredients in this soup, but it really works! It makes the ginger flavor pop and gives it some zest and zing!
And the ingredient I’m talking about is….da da da…. orange juice! It also contributes to the wonderfully fresh flavor of this soup. It really feels like you’re eating something not just delicious, but healthy too. It’s light and refreshing and ultimately delicious.
How to Make Carrot Ginger Soup
Add some chopped onion, crushed garlic and minced ginger to a pot with some olive oil and sauté until the onions are softened.
TIP: You can also use finely chopped or grated fresh ginger. I like minced ginger because I can buy it already prepared but either way is fine. We used quite a lot of ginger (3 Tablespoons), so there’s no mistaking it! If you prefer a more subtle flavor, you can use 2 Tablespoons and see how you go with that.
Then add in sliced carrots and toss up with the onions, and then add vegetable stock, orange juice, a little lemon juice and coconut milk.
TIP: Any orange juice is fine to use. I used a store-bought orange juice in a carton, I didn’t squeeze fresh oranges, though you can do that if you want to! You can also omit the orange juice if you like and replace it with extra vegetable stock.
Bring to the boil and then lower the heat, cover the pot and let it simmer until the carrots are tender.
Remove from the heat and blend with an immersion blender until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.
How To Serve Vegan Carrot Ginger Soup
Serve it with some fresh chopped cilantro for a garnish and a sprinkle of black pepper. The color is just beautiful and it doesn’t require much embellishment. You can definitely add some crusty bread for dipping on the side or make your own whole wheat bread! Some vegan garlic bread wouldn’t go amiss either!

- The ginger flavor is quite strong, we love it! But if you want a more subtle ginger flavor then use 2 Tbsp of minced ginger instead. Minced ginger can also be replaced with finely chopped fresh ginger.
- The orange juice gives this a wonderfully fresh taste. However, it can be replaced with extra vegetable stock if you prefer. It also doesn't need to be freshly squeezed orange juice, we used orange juice from a carton, but you also can use freshly squeezed if you want to.
