This coconut-based vegan ginger carrot soup is one of the simplest and most satisfying soups you could possibly make.

I mean, making soup is never particularly difficult, but this recipe is even easier to make than the average soup recipe.

All you have to do is chop some very few veggies and blend the soup when finished. Add a few more ingredients in between and that’s it!

And the result is a warming, comforting, and super healthy spicy bowl, that you can have for lunch, dinner or even transport to work in a Thermos bottle.

Ingredients

Carrots:

  • This recipe is the perfect way of using up that opened bag of carrots in your fridge. Maybe you needed just a couple of them for cooking something else and now the leftovers are staring at you every time you open the fridge.
  • Well, this recipe is the perfect solution: it is easy and quick to make, it will allow you to use up all those carrots, it is healthy and it will probably make you happy as well. Happy, that you have finely discovered such an easy and delicious carrot soup that you can make all the time.

Ginger:

  • Fresh ginger is a must! Don’t be tempted to use dried ginger, it will just not be the same.
  • If you don’t have any fresh ginger at all, then better change the flavor of the soup by replacing the fresh ginger with 1-2 teaspoons curry paste or curry powder to taste. If the curry paste/powder is very hot use less of it.

Coconut milk:

  • A pantry staple in my case, I always have it in the house. The perfect ingredients when you want to cook something quick and delicious, either soups, curries, and so on.
  • A very important ingredient for me when cooking vegan. We have vegan friends that visit from time to time and if I have a can or two of coconut milk in the cellar, I can be sure to be able to cook something really good with just a few vegetables and a can of coconut milk.
  • Some rice on the side and that’s it: a perfect vegan meal to satisfy anybody. You could try this vegan zucchini curry, this vegan potato pumpkin casserole, or this apple and chickpea curry.

Coconut oil:

  • I think its flavor is the best fit for this vegan carrot soup with coconut milk. However, if you don’t have coconut oil, replace it with any kind of oil.

Coconut chips:

  • The unsweetened coconut chips are meant to be the topping.
  • They are optional, but so delicious! Do use them, if you can get them, but make sure you serve them separately, they should only be added to the soup just before serving, so that they remain nice and crunchy.
