carrot and ginger soup

so, i made a meal plan. this recipe, while it is a soup, is nothing like the one i posted in the meal plan.

ah well.

you’ll just have to deal. i had a fridge full of carrots and not much else, hence:

carrot and ginger soup (for 3-4 people)

ingredients

  • 2 tbs vegetable oil of choice (i used canola, but using another oil would probably add a nice flavour)
  • 3 cm chunk of ginger, coarsely grated
  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped finely
  • 4 carrots, chopped small
  • 5 cups of water

method

  1. heat the oil in a large saucepan. add ginger and garlic and allow to cook for about a minute.
  2. add carrot and stir to coat them in the ginger mixture. add water.
  3. turn heat to medium-low and simmer for about 1 hour.
  4. when carrot is soft(ish), until it reaches your desired consistency.

hope you enjoy. sorry about the lack of pictures, just imagine a really violent orange coloured soup and you’ll be all set

love you ducklings 🙂
