The sweetness of carrots with the sourness of orange spiked with ginger, makes this soup heavenly delicious!
Summer is here, top up your tan with this magical soup. Carrots are the best source of beta carotene for a deeper and prolonged tan. Without forgetting the terrific benefits of ginger. Ginger is a powerful aphrodisiac and increases sexual prowess. I bet you will have fun this summer ;)
My sister in low (Salma) had carrot ginger soup in a restaurant and she liked it so much that she motivated me to look for a nice recipe to adapt. I say adapt because i can never use a recipe without adding my personal taste!
Ingredients: (serving 4 people)
- 800g carrots roughly chopped
- 1 small onion coarsely chopped (1/2 cup)
- 1/4 cup fresh ginger peeled and coarsely chopped
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 3 cups vegetable broth
- 2 cups water
- 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
- salt and pepper to taste
Heat the oil in a pot over medium heat to cook onion and ginger until soft and fragrant about 5 minutes.
Add carrots, broth, water and orange juice, increase heat to medium high and bring to boil. Reduce heat to low, cover the pot and let it simmer for 45 minutes.
Puree the soup in a blender. Add salt and pepper to taste.
You can serve it warm or chilled! To serve it chilled add a spoon of sour cream on top and savour it!
It’s so addictive that one portion is not enough! you will be craving for more.
The smell of ginger filled the house incredibly!
