Sweet and spicy soup

carrot, apple, and ginger soup

The smooth texture of this soup will awaken your taste buds. It’s slightly spicy, slightly sweet, and totally yummy.

Carrot, Apple, and Ginger Soup

1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root
6 cups Vegetable Broth or water
2 pounds carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
2 cups chopped apples, peeled
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon salt

Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large saucepan or stockpot. Add onion, and cook until translucent. Mix in garlic and ginger, and cook about 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add vegetable broth, carrots, apples, bay leaf, thyme, salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 20 minutes, or until carrots are tender.

Remove from heat, and allow soup to cool about 5 minutes. Discard bay leaf. Purée the soup in batches in a food processor or blender. When completely smooth, return to stovetop, and cook another 10 minutes.

Yield: 8 serving (serving size: about 1 cup)

Recipe Notes

  • I used Fuji apples, but you could use just about any type of apple, depending upon your personal preference.
  • If you like this flavor combination and would like to try a new juice recipe, try the Orient Express.

    I made the carrot/apple ginger soup last night and added 1/2 cup of fresh turnip. I liked it. My husband thought the receipe should have called for more apple. He has more of a sweet tooth than I do. Great idea especially for those cold nights when you don’t feel like cooking to much.

  3. I love this soup! I made it a few times last year and just made a batch for this year’s January fast. Thank you for this wonderful recipe.
