Vegan Carrot Soup

Vegan Carrot Soup

Ingredients:

  • 7 medium to large carrots (about 1.5 pounds), peeled and diced into rustic cubes
  • 6 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 piece ginger, an inch long, peeled
  • 1 onion (white or yellow), chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, whole
  • olive oil

Preparation:

1. Divide the carrots in half. Place one half of the carrots on a baking sheet. Drizzle lightly with olive oil. Toss to combine. Place in a 375°F degree oven for about 20 minutes, shaking the pan every so often for even cooking. Remove from oven when soft, slightly brown and caramelized.

2. Meanwhile, bring the stock to a boil in a large saucepan with the ginger, onion and garlic. Bring down to a simmer and cook for about 5 minutes or so until the onions are soft. Add the remaining half of the carrots and simmer for another 5 minutes until the carrots are just slightly soft but not cooked through. Transfer the mixture to a blender.

3.Add the roasted carrots to the blender with the boiled carrots. Blend until smooth. Salt and pepper to taste. Add a drizzle of olive oil to each portion of vegan carrot soup and serve.

  • 1/2 tsp cayenne powder

Combine all of the ingredients together, and allow the flavors to set for at least one hour before serving this vegan meal.
