Carrot, Turmeric & Ginger Soup {Vegan, Gluten-Free}

Carrots are a very versatile and nutritious vegetables, commonly used around the globe, raw and cooked, in a wide range of dishes, adding both taste and nutritional value. This particular recipe, Carrot, Turmeric and Ginger soup, is also a great opportunity for you to use those carrot tops and bottoms left behind after grating carrots. Turmeric and ginger are added for a kick, and because of their nutritional value as well. 

When buying carrots, look for firm, smooth, and brightly colored ones. They can be stored in the refrigerator, either loose or in a perforated reusable plastic bag, for up to a few weeks. To maintain their freshness, it better to remove the green tops before storing as they can draw moisture from the carrot roots. But don’t worry, you don’t have to throw them out. Use the green carrot tops for salads, pesto, pastas or garnish. 

If you forget a few carrots in the fridge, and they become soft, you can always revive them by soaking them in ice water and leave in the fridge for a few hours.

How to make Carrot, Turmeric Ginger soup

To make this Carrot, Turmeric and Ginger Soup is really easy. First, you need to create a flavorful base, which you’ll make by the sautéing the vegetables until they are somewhat caramelized. This process will provide deeper flavor than if you just add the broth right away. So, taking a little time with this step is worthy. 

Since the carrot soup has to cook for a bit, hence evaporating some of the liquid added and concentrating the flavors, I advise you to add the salt once the cooking process has finished, and specially if you used regular store-bought vegetable broth, which is often rich in sodium.
