Thai carrot ginger soup

Here’s pretty much all you need to know about this Thai carrot ginger soup: IT’S DELICIOUS!

That’s all.

No but I’m serious here, I’ve been eating this soup every day this week for lunch and have just finished my pot and just ran out to the grocery store to buy a 5-pound bag of carrots so I can make it again. Yeah, it’s THAT good.

If you’ve ever felt like carrot soup can be a little boring, then this is the carrot soup for you my friend! This soup is made with plenty of garlic and ginger, Thai red curry paste, curry powder and is decorated with some creamy coconut milk just to make things a little extra fancy 😉

How to make carrot soup:

Making carrot soup is really simple, and there are a few different ways to prepare this recipe.

It starts by browning your veggies in a pot, then adding some broth and letting the carrots cook down until they are nice and soft. At this point you can either add the soup to a blender and blend until smooth, or just use a hand blender.

This Thai carrot ginger soup can also be made in a slow cooker. If using a slow cooker method simply add all the ingredients to your slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours, then blend it up before serving

A few notes on the recipe:

This Thai carrot ginger soup uses only carrots, but if you’d like to add any additional veggies like sweet potato or cauliflower you can add those in too!

If you’d like to make a creamier version of this soup, you can also add in 1/2 cup coconut milk when you add in the vegetable broth. This will give the soup a richer creamier texture.

If you are strictly vegan, make sure to check the label carefully of the red curry paste you use. Many curry pastes can have shrimp paste in them.

I like to serve this soup topped with some fresh herbs, a drizzle of coconut milk, and nigella seeds!

This Thai carrot ginger soup is just a *tad* spicy and is naturally vegan, gluten-free and paleo. (so great for everyone!)
