Carrot Ginger Soup

This beautiful soup is chock full of beta-carotene, which our bodies convert into Vitamin A. Vitamin A is important for eye health, and it also helps prevent wrinkling of the skin. Ginger provides more than just a fun little kick of flavor — it’s a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant cancer fighter.

Serves 4-6.


  • 2 tablespoons coconut or extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 heaping teaspoon of fresh, grated ginger (or ¼ teaspoon of powdered ginger)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon curry powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • pinch cayenne, optional
  • 3 cups organic carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 4 cups low sodium, gluten-free broth of choice
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped Italian parsley or chive for garnish
  • Lemon wedges on the side


  • Step 1

    Set a soup pot on medium heat and warm the oil. Add the onions; sauté and stir occasionally until they start to brown — about 15 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Add the grated ginger, garlic, cumin, curry powder, turmeric, and cayenne. Cook for about a minute, and stir to make sure the onions are coated with the spices.

  • Step 3

    Add the carrots, vinegar and broth, and stir. Bring to a boil. Then reduce heat to simmer, cover, and simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until the carrots are tender.

  • Step 4

    Working in batches, pour the soup into a blender. Remove the center of the lid to let steam escape, and cover the whole lid with a towel (hot liquid tends to erupt) — blend on high. Puree until smooth. Add a little extra water if needed to reach desired consistency.

  • Step 5

    Return the soup to the pot and warm gently until hot.

  • Step 6

    Season with sea salt and pepper to taste.

  • Step 7

    Garnish with chopped parsley and serve with lemon wedges on the side. A drizzle of nice olive oil or pumpkin oil would be good here too. Serve with a side salad and protein of choice.
