Ingredients for Carrot Ginger Soup

When making this carrot ginger soup recipe, you’ll need:

  • Butter - You could use olive oil to keep the soup vegan.
  • Yellow onion  - A white onion will also work for this.
  • Aromatics - You’ll need both garlic  and ginger.
  • Carrots - We use fresh carrots for the best flavor, but you could use thawed, frozen carrots instead.
  • Vegetable Broth  - The vegetable broth adds some added flavor, but you can use water instead.
  • Spices - You’ll need  a bay leaf, cinnamon, and salt.

To garnish each bowl of carrot and ginger soup, you’ll need:

  • Coconut or table cream
  • Freshly cut chives or parsley
  • Crushed black pepper

We love to pair carrot soup with ginger with toasted Ciabatta slices from our homemade recipe and steamed broccoli.

How To Make Carrot Soup with Ginger

First, set the Instant Pot on saute mode and melt the butter or warm up the oil in the inner pot. Next, add the bay leaf, cinnamon, onions, ginger, and garlic and sauté until they soften.

Once the onions are ready, add in the carrots, salt, broth or water and give it all a quick stir.

Close the lid, seal the vent, and then pressure cook for 10 minutes followed by a natural pressure release.

When the safety button drops, open the lid carefully and then blend until smooth using a hand blender . If you don’t have a hand blender, you can carefully pour the carrot and ginger soup into a stand blender, blend on high, and then pour the blended soup back into the Instant Pot after blending.

Once smooth and blended, pour the soup into bowls, garnish with coconut or table cream, crushed black pepper, and chives or fresh parsley. Serve along side your favorite bread.

Can You Freeze Carrot Ginger Soup?

Yes, you can easily freeze this carrot ginger soup. All you need to do is allow the soup to cool completely before laddling it into a freezer safe container or containers.

For easy lunches, we recommend pouring the ginger and carrot soup into individual freezer containers. Having it in separate containers makes it easier to heat up just one serving in the microwave or stove top.

To reheat, thaw the soup overnight in the fridge and then either warm on low heat on the stove top or pour into a bowl and microwave for 2 to 3 minutes or until warmed through.

What Goes With Carrot Soup?

Carrot soup combines a little bit of sweetness with some savory spices and flavors.Like most soups, it goes great with fresh breads like Ciabatta, Garlic knots,bread sticks.

You can also serve it with fresh, steamed broccoli or air fried carrots. That combination gives you a nutritious and filling meal that will help your kids and family eat more veggies.

How Can I Make This Carrot Soup Vegan?

Though we often use butter and table cream, you can easily make the carrot ginger soup with coconut milk or cream and olive oil. Just swap the butter with olive oil and the table cream with the coconut milk.

What Can You Serve Carrot Ginger Soup With?

Carrot ginger soup goes great with fresh bread. We like to serve with toasted slices of our easy ciabatta bread. You can also serve it with our copycat Olive Garden breadsticks or even these no knead rolls.

When we do a detox, we like to serve it with other steam or roasted veggies. Our favorites include air fried carrots and steamed broccoli. You could also serve it with your favorite roasted veggies too!

How To Make The Carrot and Ginger Soup Creamy?

At the end, we add either table cream or coconut cream. The addition of cream gives the carrot soup a creamier texture and flavor. 

It also helps to really blend the soup well with your blender. This helps release the fiber in the carrots, which can help thicken the soup a bit.

For added creaminess, use butter instead of oil. The butter adds some flavor and helps to make the soup taste a bit creamier.
