A bowl of warm soup on a cold day is one of my favorite things, especially when it’s as nourishing and tasty as this Ginger Carrot Soup is!

Are you ready for the best bowl of comfort soup ever?!

As much as we love blending fresh fruits and veggies into a refreshing glass of goodness… a warm bowl of soup soothes the soul like nothing else!  So, we wanna share our Ginger Carrot Soup recipe we looooooooove. And yep—it’s from our amazing Fresh Start Plant-Based Cleanse.

If you have a family to feed, we highly recommend you quadruple this soup recipe (so everyone gets to enjoy it). I remember when my husband asked for seconds, and I was like, “wait…um, I was saving the leftovers for lunch.” 🙂

This Creamy Ginger Carrot Soup is just one of our drool-worthy recipes from our 21-day meal plan. We make whole foods taste real good. Psssst… having a second serving is totally okay with us. #judgementfreezone

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 small onion (chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger (peeled and chopped)
  • 2 cloves garlic (peeled and chopped)

    Since there are no silly questions… 🙂
    Carrots come in so many different sizes, do you know how many grams your 6 carrots end up being? Want to make sure I do it right as it looks absolutely delicious!

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      I would suggest using medium size carrots. These do not have to be exact measurements since it’s almost impossible to get all carrots the exact same size and shape. The medium carrot is between 5.5” and 7.25” in length and weighs between 50 and 72 grams each. When I make this recipe I grab the carrots that look the best to me and go from there. 🙂

      Cannot wait for you to try it!

  2. Jane says:

    I can’t find an answer to Rebecca’s question about the six chunks of carrots. She thinks if it’s six chunks of carrots that would be equal to two carrots but depending bon the size of the chunks it could be less or more than two. Seems to me that with a soup called “,carrot …” it’s important to know the amount of the most important ingredient!

    It would be great if you could clarify!

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Jane,

      This recipes you will need 6 carrots and then you will wash them and cut into halves.

      Enjoy!! 🙂

  3. Rebecca Rogge says:

    So … maybe this is a silly question. But how much is “6 pieces carrots”? Is it six carrots cut into pieces? Or just six chunks of carrot, total (which seems like it would be about two carrots)?

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Rebecca,

      There are no silly questions here!!! The recipe calls for 6 carrots washed and chopped into halves.

      Hope that helps! 🙂

  4. Julie says:

    Probably a crazy question. But do you use canned coconut milk or the kind in a tetra pac? Both are unsweetened, the tetra pac has more additives though. I guess this question would apply to coconut milk in smoothies as well. Thanks so much.

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Julie,

      Either is a great option! We always lean towards the most natural options, that’s why we like to make our own!

      Just make sure you’re getting coconut milk and not coconut creme!

    I made this for dinner for my SIL (and everyone else) who is on special dietary restrictions pre and post surgery. I only had to opt out of using any oil and added some organic chicken boullion. It was amazing!!
