Creamy Carrot Ginger Soup - A spicy and creamy soup recipe featuring pureed carrots, ginger root, coconut milk and turmeric. A fall favorite!
A creamy carrot soup just screams fall. It’s warm, cozy and super good. But I wanted to kick it up a notch and give this simple carrot soup some extra zing! So we added loads of ginger, turmeric, coriander and cayenne, and made it vegan by using coconut milk.
This Creamy Carrot Ginger Soup will warm up any cool fall day. It’s simple and very flavorful. It’s great for meal prep and can be frozen and enjoyed later. Not to mention it’s vegan and gluten-free.

1 - Prep. Dice onions, mince garlic, grate ginger, chop carrots and potatoes.
2 - Saute. Heat a large pot or dutch oven over medium heat. Add coconut oil, and once the coconut oil is liquid, add onions and saute until onions are translucent, about 10 minutes. Then add garlic and ginger and saute until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Then add carrots and potatoes. Cover and cook, stirring often until the carrots and potatoes are soft, 40-45 minutes.
3 - Boil. Once the vegetables are soft, add the spices and broth, bring to a boil. You want the broth to be hot.
4 - Puree. Remove the soup from heat and puree it with an immersion blender. Alternatively, you can transfer it to a blender - blend in batches as hot liquid expands as you blend it. Be sure not to overfill the blender. And make sure to hold the lid down tight with a towel. Return to pot after pureeing.
5 - Reheat. Return the pot to the stovetop and add coconut milk. Stir to combine, until the soup is thoroughly heated. Adjust seasonings as desired.
6 - Serve: Garnish with mint leaves, pepitas and a sprinkle of lemon juice. We typically enjoy it with a slice of fresh bread!
