6-ingredient carrot and ginger soup

Being the lazy couch potato that I am, my improvised recipe for carrot and ginger soup (not counting seasonings such as oil, salt, and pepper) contains only 6 ingredients,  is vegetarian and vegan-friendly, and a quick way to use up spare ingredients. 

You will need:

  • 3 medium-sized carrots, roughly chopped into small pieces
  • A piece of ginger, chopped (size depends on your preference)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3-4 cups of water/vegetable broth
  • Basil
  • Milk (for vegan and veg version, use full fat coconut milk)
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Brown the onions in some oil, and add the ginger and broth/water, and bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes with the lid on, then add the carrots. 

Simmer for an extra 5-6 minutes (depending on how you like the colour of the soup). If required, add a ladleful of milk/coconut milk. Stand aside to cool, and blend.
