Ingredients
  

  • 2 tbsp coconut (or olive) olive
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
  • 1 3 inch piece ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 1.5 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper - see notes section for amounts (optional)
  • 1 tsp turmeric (optional)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 2 lbs carrots, cut into 1/2 inch slices
  • 4 cups water

Instructions
 

  • Heat oil in a Dutch oven or large pot over medium heat.
  • When the oil is shimmering, add onion. Cook until onion has softened and is beginning to turn brown, 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add garlic and ginger. Cook until fragrant and beginning to brown, 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add salt and spices (red pepper, cinnamon, turmeric) if using. Stir to combine.
  • Add carrots and water. Increase heat to high to bring to a boil. Then cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer on low for 20 minutes.
  • Let the soup cool for 5 minutes, then add in batches to a blender. Use a measuring cup or pitcher to scoop the contents. Puree until smooth and uniform.
  • Serve in bowls and top with chopped nuts, seeds, yogurt, or more spices.
  • The soup will keep well for 3-4 days covered in the refrigerator. I like to pour the soup back into my Dutch oven for easy reheating and storage.

Notes

Spice level - Using 1/4 tsp of crushed red pepper adds only a slight spiciness. 1/2 tsp will add some noticeable spice. Add more if you really like your soup spicy. You can also use cayenne powder which will be a bit more spicy than crushed pepper. Alternatively, use crush red pepper as a topping instead of making the entire soup spicy.
Additional spices - Cumin, paprika, curry powder or garam masala can also be added to this soup. Alternatively, you can leave spices out altogether for a basic carrot ginger soup that will still taste delicious.
