Gingered Carrot Soup recipe

Preparation Time: 10 minutes | Cooking Time: 20 minutes

This soup contains just 6 ingredients - carrots, dried chilli, vegetable stock, root ginger, onion and seasonings. It's as easy that! Garnish with some thinly sliced spring onions for extra freshness and flavour.

Ingredients:

  • 750g carrots
  • 1 litre vegetable stock
  • 1 10cm piece root ginger
  • 1 onion
  • 1 dried red chilli or 1 tbsp. dried red chilli flakes
  • Salt and pepper
  • Oil to fry

Directions:

  1. Peel and finely dice the carrots. Dice the onion. Peel the ginger and finely mince.

  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the onion and fry until browned and soft, then add the carrots, chilli and ginger and fry for another 5 minutes.

  3. Pour in the stock. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes or until the carrots are tender.

  4. Blend until smooth using a hand blender. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

You can omit the chilli if you prefer - and you could also add a little orange juice to the soup for extra flavour. Recipe serves 4.
