Roasted Carrot Ginger Soup 22



I must admit that I love root soups, and this roasted carrot soup is no exception. I wish I could tell you that my hubby and kids thought the same thing, but really…sometimes you gotta make something you love, even if the masses don’t.  

I wish you could have seen my poor little one’s face when I served up this soup for dinner.  It was like I took her favorite unicorn and dipped it in mud.  “I don’t like this, mommy.” She hadn’t even tried it.  She wouldn’t even lick it.  Poor thing.  I think she had bacon and crackers for dinner.

Don’t worry, I am not starving my children. They are well fed and cared for.  Even if they won’t try my carrot soup.

I like the roasted flavor of the veggies and the potato adds a little extra creaminess if you don’t want to add the heavy cream.  It will still be good…if you like your soup that way! 🙂

Ingredients
  1. 2 pounds carrots, cleaned and chopped roughly
  2. 1 medium potato, peeled and chopped roughly
  3. 1 medium onion roughly chopped
  4. 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  5. 5 cups chicken stock
  6. 1 1/2 -2 Tbsp fresh grated ginger or 1/2 to 1 tsp. ginger
  7. 1 cup heavy cream
  8. salt to taste
Instructions
  1. Toss carrots, potato and onion in olive oil until coated.
  2. Roast in the oven at 400 degrees for 25 minutes, turning regularly.
  3. Put chicken stock on to boil.
  4. Add roasted veggies and ginger and cook until soft, about an additional 10-15 minutes.
  5. Put into blender and blend until smooth.
  6. You may need to divide into smaller batches depending on size of blender.
  7. Put blended mixture back into pan and add the heavy cream.
  8. Salt to taste and serve.
Notes
  1. When you are roasting the vegetables, be sure to watch them so they do not char. When you blend the hot soup, be sure to do it in small batches and cover the lid with a cloth so you do not burn yourself.
  2. Serve with bacon, roasted chickpeas, french bread or crackers.

So, to be honest, I have been struggling to find time to sit down and write. Believe it or not, I can put out a recipe much quicker than I can a thoughtful and informative post. I have some great ideas, but am struggling to find the time to get them out and edit them!!

I have to make do, just like my kiddos with the soup. Even when I called it Halloween soup they weren’t happy. I think they were worried that I chopped up their jack-o’laterns and made them into soup.

But, I love soup, especially in the fall and winter. So, this recipe was for me: Roasted Carrot Ginger Soup!

I prefer to use fresh ginger, but don’t often keep it on hand, so you can substitute the powdered kind if you like.  It has a little different flavor but will do in a pinch.

Enjoy!! What is your favorite fall soup? Let me know.

P.S. If you have any tips for carving out time, feel free to leave that as well!! 

Have a beautiful fall day!

    I really struggle with writing sometimes too. Totally relate to that. I also love pureed winter soups. I have made a similiar recipe quite a while back. I loved it; my husband hated it, lol. He gone for work right now, so looks like I’ll be enjoying this soup without any comments from the peanut gallery 🙂

      I am glad I am not alone, Lauren. You always seem to have it together! This recipe was yummy, but it is hard for me to make something that only I like. Thanks for coming over!

    Can you send me a bowl of that soup? Looks absolutely delicious! I love creamy soups, especially during winter and autumn, even if my kids aren’t a big fans. They still eat them but not as much as I would like. Thanks for the recipe!

      Me too Ana! I remember I once made soup in the summer and my husband thought it was a joke: “Soup in the summer?” Well, I like soup anytime, but fall and winter are best!

    This sounds wonderful. I was going to make my sausage and lentil soup with my left over stock…but I may make this instead!
    I have picky grandchildren who, like your little one, are reluctant to ‘try’ anything new…soooo… I call them into the kitchen and tell the I need them to help me with something….”will you taste this and see if you think it needs more salt?” or sugar or butter or whatever….and once they do, usually, they are willing to eat more….well, sometimes they will….and if the pickiest one helps me ‘cook’..she can taste all along and that really gets them on my side…;)

    I really can’t wait to try this soup! Thanks for sharing….

      Renee, great idea!! My little ones love to help, so I will try this with them. At least it will be exposing them to more, whether they eat it or not! Thanks for stopping over!! Come again.

    My favorite fall soup is my Kickin’ Cauliflower Soup! I’m a soup fanatic, but when I make it and the grands come over, they immediately pinch their noses and ask what that horrible smell is. I’ll have to try your roasted carrot ginger soup – sounds and looks heavenly!

    Thanks for sharing at the Pretty Pintastic Party!
