What I love about this carrot ginger soup

New year, new you. That’s what they say, right? Well I haven’t really started this year on the right foot so far. Even though I should be eating healthy, black eyed pea salad, I’ve been indulging in junk food and leftover appetizers from New Year’s Eve, like onion straws and shrimp toast.

My one saving grace was this carrot ginger soup. I had a warm, healthy bowl of soup today for lunch, and I’m thinking about doing it again tomorrow.

It’s the perfect way to spice up your New Year. It’s loaded with flavors and creamy to boot. It’ll make you want to eat nothing but good-for-you food for the rest of 2015.

Okay, maybe it won’t prevent the occasional sugar cookie or sinful helping of mac and cheese, but it’ll get you going in the right direction for a while. I promise.

How to make vegan carrot soup

Sauté the vegetables. In a large stockpot or Dutch oven, heat some olive oil to medium-high. Add the chopped onions and sauté until they start to become translucent. The add the carrots and continue to sauté for about 5 more minutes.

Simmer. Add the remaining ingredients and bring the liquid to a strong simmer. Cover the pot, reduce the heat, and simmer for about 20 minutes.

Puree the soup. Once the veggies are super soft, you’ll want to blend it. I usually use an immersion blender to do this, but you can also use a blender or food processor. Then adjust the seasoning with salt & pepper before serving.
