Carrot Ginger Soup

I make this with baby carrots or large carrots and sometimes extra ginger, and it is really good hot or cold. Recently I garnished with fresh toasted pumpkin seeds, but croutons work well too.


  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 20 min
  • Ready Time : 35 min




  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped onion
  • 1 tbsp. finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 medium carrots, peeled and diced (about 3 cups)
  • 1 sweet potato, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon zest
  • 3 cups vegetable broth or water
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice


1 Heat oil in heavy large pot over medium-high heat.
2 Add onion; sauté 4 minutes. Add ginger and garlic; sauté 2 minutes. Add chopped carrots, sweet potatoes and lemon peel; sauté 1 minute. Add 3 cups stock and bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover partially and simmer until carrots are very tender, about 20 minutes. Cool slightly.
3 Puree soup in batches in blender. Return soup to pot. Mix in lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill.)
4 Bring soup to simmer, thinning with more stock, if desired. Ladle into bowls. Garnish with tarragon or chives.

    This is my recipe and I made it again recently, I really like the lemon juice in it, it helps if your guests don’t like the carrot flavor too much like mine.

  2. Is it 1 1/2 cups carrots, or 3?

  3. 3 cups, thanks I will fix it.
