Roasted Carrot Ginger Soup is a vibrant, hearty soup. Carrots, onion and garlic are roasted for extra flavor and healthy ginger is added for extra health benefits. You wont even realize how healthy it really is because you’ll be thinking how good it is.

So we are just about half-way through January and if you’re like me, all you’re reading is, detox, cleanse smoothie, etc. This roasted carrot ginger soup is my contribution to the detox bandwagon. But I don’t consider it detox soup because it’s so good.
 

It’s all about adding flavor

This soup gets flavor from a couple of different techniques. Firstly, the homemade vegetable stock (recipe), it is so important that this ingredient has as much flavor as possible to transfer as much flavor to the soup as possible.

Secondly, roasting the vegetables gives huge flavor by browning and adding a lot of natural sweetness, especially roasted garlic. I mean, who likes boiled vegetables?

Make ahead and freeze

This soup is a great make ahead meal that freezes well. It also keeps refrigerated for up to 5 days so you have lunch or a light dinner for most of the week.

Garnished simply with sour cream and chopped parsley, this soup is sweet, light and has a slight touch of spice from the ginger. Healthy and cleansing at the same time. This soup is also vegan, just omit the sour cream garnish and you’re all set.
