Published on

A cooking secret behind this soup's delicious spice balance: use both fresh AND dried ginger for layered flavor profiles.

Ginger carrot soup is a rich and creamy treat on a cold day.

Type of dish: Side Dish, Soups
Servings: 3-4
Equipment: Immersion blender or blender, cooking pot


  • 1 lb carrots, cut into ½ inch thick rounds
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 1 inch piece fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 tsp dried ginger
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 4 to 6 TB grass fed butter
  • 2 TB freshly squeezed orange juice
  • yogurt or sour cream for garnish (optional)
  • minced chives for garnish
  • orange zest for garnish
  • salt and pepper to taste, if desired


  1. Add the carrots and chicken stock to the soup pot and cook on medium-low to medium heat until carrots softened (a sharp knife easily goes through them when pierced), perhaps 20 minutes or so.
  2. Once cooked, turn off the heat and add the fresh ginger, dried ginger, cumin, butter, and orange juice.
  3. Purée with a handheld blender, or if you don’t have one, transfer to a blender and purée.
  4. Serve in soup bowls, and garnish with chives and orange zest. Add in optional yogurt or sour cream for a nice sour touch to the soup if you like it. Salt and pepper to taste if desired.

  1. I’m wondering if I could cook this with beef bone broth instead of chicken stock? It’s what I have on hand, so I’d love to use it as a substitute.
