Turmeric Ginger Carrot Soup

If you’re looking for an easy, heartwarming soup that’s full of nourishing ingredients, this is it! At first glance, this soup may look a little complicated, but it’s probably one of the easiest soups you’ll ever make.

After discovering this soup combo while I was sick, I knew I had to share it with you! I was craving something that was nourishing, creamy and sweet in flavor. The ginger in this soup adds the perfect little kick when you’re feeling under the weather.

This soup is dairy-free, gluten-free, sugar-free and full of fiber. Kids love it too! My daughter gobbled it right up and asked for seconds. If you have a picky eater in the house, just omit any toppings and only give them the carrot soup.

Turmeric Ginger Carrot Soup Ingredients

CARROTS: Carrots are the foundation of this soup. They will give it the sweetness and creaminess that you’re really going to love. Because of that, go with good quality farmer’s market carrots if you can. The flavor is worth it!

QUICK TIP: Carrots are a wonderful vegetable to add to pureed soups. They help to sweeten and thicken the soup! I’ve used them in a variety of recipes including my creamy carrot tomato soup and creamy rutabaga carrot soup.

GINGER: Don’t skip the fresh ginger in this soup. It adds the perfect “zing” that this soup needs. Just a hint of hit will go a long way, but if you love ginger you can always add more!

TURMERIC: The turmeric powder is what will make this soup a delicious golden hue. Turmeric is a wonderful warming spice that has been used for thousands of years in India. It’s the perfect spice to add to soups during the cold wintery months. Turmeric contains a compound called curcumin which is known to have anti-inflammatory effects and is also a strong antioxidant.

COCONUT MILK: To add more creaminess, one can of coconut milk is used. This makes the soup dairy-free. However, you could also use about 1 ½ cups of heavy cream in replacement.
