CREAMY CARROT GINGER SOUP WITH BLACK PEPPER

Carrot ginger soup for the soul.

Carrot ginger soup is made for your soul. And it is also made super creamy without any dairy and with the magic of raw cashews. And they don’t require soaking because they are going to simmer in our stock and get nice and plump prior to blending.

This carrot soup takes twenty minutes to cook and requires just a handful of pantry ingredients like low-sodium vegetable broth, olive oil and ground ginger. I chose to make this soup with ground ginger instead of fresh because it abundant in my pantry right now and it is a great way to consume the power-packed root in an affordable, accessible way.
