Creamy Carrot Soup Recipe Is Nutritious & Delicious (7 Ingredients)

The health benefits of carrots are undeniable. Just check out all the health benefits of carrots. If you want to add a healthy dose of carrots to your diet, this creamy carrot soup recipe is a good first step. Flavored with a hint of ginger (check out the health benefits of ginger), this easy soup recipe is full of sweet carrot goodness.

The gluten-free soup starts with cooking onions and carrots in a little olive. Add some ground ginger, water and broth and gently simmer for about 20 to 25 minutes. Next, stir in the tiny bit of heavy cream (it doesn't take much to make this soup "creamy"). Now comes the fun part! Blend it all up using an immersion blender. If you don't have one, cool the low-calorie, low-sodium soup a little then carefully blend in a traditional blender (following manufacturer's instructions).

The vibrant orange, nutritious vegetarian soup can be eaten hot or at room temperature. Serve this creamy carrot soup recipe as a first course or with a salad for a light dinner or lunch. Garnish with a drizzle of olive oil and chopped fresh parsley for color. What a fun recipe to serve on Easter or anytime!
