The best ever creamy vegan carrot ginger soup. This light and refreshing soup is zesty, tangy, fresh, 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 contributes to the wonderfully fresh flavor of this soup. It really feels like you’re eating something that’s not just delicious, but healthy too.
It’s light and refreshing and ultimately delicious.
How to Make Carrot Ginger Soup
You will find full instructions and measurements in the recipe card at the bottom of the post. This is a summary of the process to go along with the process photos.
Add chopped onion, crushed garlic, minced ginger and olive oil to a pot and sauté until the onions are softened.
Then add in sliced carrots and toss up with the onions.
Add vegetable stock, orange juice, a little lemon juice and coconut milk and mix in.
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.
Fresh ginger. 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.
Orange juice. 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.
Serve this vegan carrot ginger soup with some fresh chopped cilantro and a sprinkle of ground black pepper. The color is just beautiful and it doesn’t require much embellishment.
You can definitely add some crusty bread on the side for dipping or make your own vegan beer bread, vegan soda bread or vegan focaccia to serve with it. Some vegan garlic bread wouldn’t go amiss either!
It keeps beautifully in the fridge for 3-4 days. It’s also freezer friendly for up to 3 months. Let it cool down completely before freezing.
