HOW TO MAKE CARROT AND GINGER SOUP
There are two easy ways of making carrot and ginger soups, and the difference is made by the way you use the carrots. If you have roasted carrot leftovers from your Thanksgiving dinner, this carrot soup is just the best way to use them. If you have a batch of fresh carrots, like we did, boiling or steaming them to preserve their vitamins and minerals, and blending with the rest of the ingredients will also have great results. We always recommend using fresh ginger instead of powdered, because it gives a richer flavour to your soup, while also infusing it with fresh enzymes and digestive healing compounds. Powdered ginger also works, but the flavour will be slightly different and less intense.
So, for our gingered carrot soup we used just a few ingredients – fresh carrots and onion, miso paste, fresh orange juice, low sodium vegetable broth and coconut yogurt.
CAN I USE OLD CARROTS IN SOUP?
Absolutely yes! Soups are a great way to use old veggies that hide on the shelves of your refrigerators, or shrinks and dehydrate in your pantry. Especially root vegetables, like carrots and sweet potatoes, work perfectly in soups, because, although they dehydrate, they are still packed with fibre, minerals and vitamins that will help your body restore after stressful periods.
HOW LONG DOES CARROT SOUP LAST IN THE FRIDGE?
This gingered carrot soup make a good recipe for meal prepping. Its delicious flavour lasts for about 5 days if kept in an airtight jar in the refrigerator. It’s always recommended to not heat the food several times, because most of its nutrients get lost, so pack the soup in separate jars or heat only the portion that you are going to serve once.
