- 3 tbsp olive oil (or other cooking oil)
- 1/2 yellow onion, diced
- 1/4 cup fresh ginger, minced
- 4 cups chopped and peeled carrots (about 1 1/2 pounds)
- 3 cups vegetable broth
- 1 1/2 cups orange juice
- dash nutmeg
- salt and pepper to taste
First, in a large pot, sautee the onions and ginger in the olive oil until soft, about 3-5 minutes.
Next, add in the carrots and vegetable broth and reduce the heat to medium. Allow the carrots to simmer for about 40 minutes, or until they are soft.
Add in the orange juice and stir well.
Working in small batches and using a food processor or blender, process the soup until smooth.
Return the pureed mixture to the pot to gently reheat.
Or, if not needed, transfer your soup to a serving bowl and add a touch of nutmeg, salt and pepper, stirring well.
Serve your vegan carrot and ginger soup with a dollop of soy yogurt or vegan sour cream if desired, a sprinkle of nutmeg for garnish, and enjoy!
