Roasted Carrot and Ginger Soup

Roasted Carrot and Ginger Soup is delectable comfort food during the cool, winter months. I started out by roasting carrots, leeks, onions, garlic and ginger. Then I added them to a Dutch oven with orange peel and vegetable broth. After pureeing the soup I added coconut milk and some fresh thyme. It was thick, savory with just a hint of sweetness from the ginger and orange peel. I loved it!

About five years ago I tried a Carrot and Ginger Soup recipe I saw online. I had taken pictures and everything and then sat down to eat a bowl. Yuck. It was awful. It was so bad that I couldn’t post it and threw the stuff out. That rarely happens but every now and then you have a bad experience with a recipe.

I didn’t try to make it again for all these years. Finally, I was really wanting to make a soup with carrots and ginger and decided to go back to the drawing board and see what I could come up with. I was really pleased with how this version turned out. It’s creamy, smooth and delightful comfort food. Roasting the veggies adds incredibly rich flavor.

Roasted Carrot and Ginger Soup is a little more savory than some butternut squash soups. But it does have a touch of sweetness so it’s not a completely savory soup. I really enjoyed it, but if you must have your soups sweeter, then you can always add a little honey if you desire. Or, you can add a fuji or gala apple (unpeeled but cored) when roasting the vegetables and that will provide a slightly sweeter taste if that’s what you prefer in soups.

Roasted Carrot and Ginger Soup is a healthy, gluten free, vegan, low calorie and clean eating main dish. It’s terrific for Meatless Mondays and as leftovers for lunch at the office. I served mine with additional roasted carrots on top and Homemade Gluten Free Croutons (which I make all the time). I loved mixing the crunchy carrots and croutons with the creaminess of the pureed soup.

Believe me, this was one of those comforting, satisfying, creamy soups that you love to warm up with when it’s cold outside. And it won’t break your budget to make it. A win for all! 😉

    Your recipe is very detailed, but I don’t like the smell of thyme, will it change the taste of the dish much if I remove it?

      I would recommend marjoram as an excellent substitute.

      Hi, Bruce. I have a ton of thick soups like this one made with sweet potatoes, butternut squash and tomato that are all pureed. Check them out. They’re all delightful. 🙂
