It’s been a while since I’ve shared recipe that’s not sweet, so today we’re kicking the week off with this amazing, brilliant carrot soup.
Before we dive in, let’s chat a bit! What’s up guys? You know I love hearing from you, so don’t hesitate to write to me, anywhere, anytime.
I’ve been super productive behind the scenes, bringing you completely free “2019 with vision” challenge – I held nothing back, you’re gonna learn how to make powerful vision boards that actually become reality from someone who literally lives a life from her vision board.
I want you to go straight to 2019 with a plan & desired outcome – shitty New Year resolutions clearly don’t work. Otherwise everyone would be fit, happy & healthy, wouldn’t they?
I’m also preparing for my new traveling adventure, so make sure to hang out with me on Instagram, I’ll be sharing Berlin with you guys. It’s gonna be legendary.
Perhaps I could present my divine carrot soup to my cousin in Berlin as well – it’s such an impressive dish, I love it!
Carrot soup warms the heart completely, it’s perfect for the season. The color goes well with the season too!
You’re gonna love it:
carrots are awesome
just 3 ingredients
If you want to impress guests, this is the soup to serve! It’s gonna blown their mind by its gorgeous look, taste & simplicity.
Carrots are magnificent – they’ll give us beta-carotene that our bodies converts to vitamin A. Beta-carotene is also a great antioxidant, and we wanna have these protecting us in the season of sneezing.
Carrots also contain potassium – our muscles, bones, heart & blood pressure will benefit from it. Biotin in carrots will help us metabolise fats & proteins.
Vitamin K in carrots is going to make sure our blood coagulation works fine & our bones stay healthy.
Also, carrots will give us a lot of fiber, making our gut super happy. And when our gut is happy, we are happy too!
To spice our soup up, we’re gonna use ginger. I’m obsessed with the touch ginger gives to the soup, it defines it. It gives it that warming feeling, simply beautiful. You can use as much as you want, I usually use a small piece, half thumb.
As for nutrition, ginger is a true powerhouse. It has anti-inflammatory & antioxidant properties. Aside it being rich in plant compounds, ginger contains several vitamins & minerals, such as folate, riboflavin, vitamin C, niacin, magnesium, zinc, iron… It truly is a superfood.
Wonderful addition to protect us from the sneezing season.
Aside from olive oil, the only ingredient we’re gonna need are onions. They are rich in sulphuric compounds & phytonutrients, meaning they have powerful antioxidant properties. Onions also contain folate & are rich in fiber.
As I’ve said, this carrot soup is definitely a winner – such a rich dish, yet it’s as simple as it gets.
Some toppings I love are:
- chopped walnuts
- tons of parsley/fresh herbs
- cashew parmesan cheese
- crispy tofu
- cooked egg
WHY YOU SHOULD EAT IT:
- Carrots: beta-carotene, vitamin K, biotin, potassium, fiber

SIMPLE CARROT SOUP
- 1 tbsp olive oil best quality
- 1 onion chopped
- 2 pounds (1kg) carrots chopped
- 6-7 cups (1.5l) vegetable stock
- ginger, small piece, to taste
In a medium sauce pan, heat olive oil a bit.
In another medium sauce pan, boil your vegetable stock.
Add onions & cook for 5 minutes, or until softened.
Add carrots, cook for another few minutes.
Stirr in hot vegetable stock & cook till carrots are soft.
When cooked, transfer everything to the food processor, add a piece of ginger & let the food processor do its magic.
Serve hot & enjoy!
- No need to finely chop anything - it's all gonna end up in the food processor anyways. Just make chunks that fit in the pan easily 🙂
