This is a comfort food soup for lazy, bad weather, and cold temps days. Easy and quick recipe to make 🙂

Carrot Ginger Soup

Course: Ordinary Recipes Made Gourmet

Recipe by Simply Recipes


  • 3 tbsp. unsalted butter

  • 1 1/2 pounds carrots (6-7 large carrots), peeled and sliced thin

  • 2 cups chopped white or yellow onion

  • Kosher salt

  • 1 tsp. minced ginger

  • 2 cups chicken stock or vegetable stock

  • 2 cups water

  • 3 large strips of zest from an orange

  • Chopped chives, parsley, dill or fennel for garnish


  • Sauté onions and carrots: Melt the butter in a soup pot over medium heat and cook the onions and carrot, stirring occasionally, until the onions soften, about 5 to 8 minutes.
  • Do not let the onions or carrots brown. Sprinkle a teaspoon of salt over the carrots and onions as they cook.
  • Add stock and water, ginger, and strips of orange zest. Bring to a simmer, cover, and cook until the carrots soften, about 20 minutes.
  • Remove the strips of orange zest and discard.
  • Purée soup:
  • Working in small batches, pour the soup into a blender and purée until completely smooth. Only fill the blender bowl a third full with the hot liquid and keep one hand pressing down on the cap of the blender to keep it from popping off.
  • Add more salt to taste. (You will need more salt if you are using homemade unsalted stock or unsalted butter.)
  • Garnish with chopped chives, parsley, fennel fronds, or a spoonful of whipped cream.
