Vegan Carrot Ginger Soup

Jan 14

Hi bb’s! It is poooouring rain here in LA today (I kind of love it honestly!) so I thought today would be a good day to not only make one of my favorite soups, but also finally share the recipe with you! Like I said on Instagram: I am a soup girl through and through, rain or shine, I LOVE SOUP! I tend to gear towards warm foods so I love a good broth and/or soup; plus they are great to put in a mug and take on the go! Speaking of on the go: I started BBG again today and accidentally spent 3 hours at the gym this morning lol.. ok you’re probably wondering HOW I did that and what the heck I was doing all morning: first I took a yoga class, then I walked on the treadmill for a bit while I answered some emails and DM’s, and then I did BBG 1.0 day 1 legs! I had some time this morning so I took my time at the gym and it was so nice to not feel in a rush! However, by the time I left it was noon.. and I was starving.. and needed to get my booty home to work.. so I wanted to whip up something warm and comforting that was also quick and easy that I could easily enjoy while working, and my vegan carrot ginger soup was the perfect thing to make! 🙂


Ingredients for vegan carrot ginger soup:

4 cups of peeled and chopped carrots

3 cups low sodium vegetable broth

3 TBSP. avocado oil or olive oil(or another cooking oil of your choice)

1/2 of an onion, peeled and diced

1/4 cup fresh ginger, skin off and minced

Himalayan pink salt and black pepper to taste

optional: top with fresh parsley or your favorite herb!


 

Cooking instructions:

  1. In a large pot, sauté the onions and ginger in avocado oil until they soften (took mine about 3-5 minutes)
  2. Next, add in the carrots and veggie broth, and reduce the heat. Cover with a lid with steaming holes (or place the lid half way on so that air can still get in and out of the pot) Allow the carrots to simmer until they are soft
  3. Using either a food processor, immersion blender or a regular blender, carefully process the soup until smooth
  4. Return the pureed mixture to the pot to gently reheat. Or, if not needed, transfer your soup to a serving bowl and add a touch of salt, pepper and your favorite fresh herb (optional!) and enjoy!
