Vegan carrot ginger soup – the details
The recipe couldn’t be easier. Base are onion, garlic, ginger and carrots as well as vegetable broth, coconut milk, freshly squeezed orange juice and spices. The vegetables are fried in a saucepan and deglazed with broth and coconut milk and seasoned. Freshly squeezed orange juice gives the soup a fresh, sweet aroma that goes perfectly with the carrot-ginger combination.
The soup is cooked for about 20 minutes and then pureed in the mixer. Finally, serve with bread or toast, a dash of coconut milk or soy cuisine and fresh parsley.
So easy and so delicious!
Alternatives and tips
Instead of frying the carrots in a pot, you can marinate them with oil, salt and pepper and bake them in the oven at 180 – 200 degrees for about 30 to 40 minutes. The roasted aromas that arise during baking give the soup a totally delicious aroma. Then puree with the remaining ingredients to make a soup.
Not a fan of coconut milk or an intolerance? No problem. Alternatively, you can use vegan cooking cream (for example soy cuisine). You can also just use broth. In this case, the soup will be less creamy, but it will also taste good.
