You just can’t beat a good soup this time of the year! Ginger and turmeric carrot soup is a delightful combination of flavors. The sweetness of the carrots is nicely balanced by the the pungent taste of the spices.

On top of being incredibly tasty and creamy, this soup is also packed with nutrition. Turmeric and ginger are well known for their anti-inflammatory and healing properties.

The recipe is fast and easy:  sautée the onion, garlic, ginger, orange zest and turmeric, toss in the carrots, add the vegetable stock and orange juice, simmer until the carrots are tender, and puree until smooth. Once all the soup is blended, return it to the pot and add more liquid if you prefer a thinner consistency.

I like to top my spiced carrot soup with a sprinkle of chopped toasted hazelnuts and a sprig of fresh thyme. You could also add a dollop of sour cream, Greek yogurt, or coconut cream to keep it vegan.

Serve it alongside a salad for a light lunch or as a starter for dinner or brunch. Store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 4 days or in the freezer for up to 4 months.

This ginger and turmeric carrot soup warms you from the inside out and is absolutely delightful on a chilly winter evening!
