|Carrot Ginger Soup in a mug|
This is my fast and easy version of a delicious healthy carrot ginger soup. To say that this carrot ginger soup is fast and easy to make, is an understatement.
I'm starting to come down with a sore throat and a cold. I was feeling chilly, so, I wanted something hot to eat that could be made quickly. I had some sweet organic carrots in the fridge and a peice of fresh ginger. I made the two ingredients into a quick soup that turned out to be surprisingly delicious. It is gluten free, fat free, low calorie, and vegan and the color is bright and appealing.
I liked the soup so much, I ate two large bowls.
What was so great about this soup?
- It was soothing- It's the kind of soup you could eat when your sick, like a comfort soup.
- It was light but filling.
- It tasted great
- It took under 10 minutes to make
- It's made with two healthy ingredients ( carrots and fresh ginger)
- It could be topped with Greek Yogurt or Sour Cream for an extra special boost
- Carrots are good for you, full of beta carotene and antioxidants
- Ginger has many health giving benefits as well
- It was good enough to serve to company- really
- It could be served chilled in the summer-yum
- It is salt free- know anyone on a low salt diet?
- It is 0 points on Weight Watchers- !
- You can add other spices as well; when it was done cooking I added 1 tsp of ground cumin
Great Tip**** Freeze your Ginger! If you don't use fresh ginger very often, you can freeze peeled leftover ginger and keep it for up to 6 weeks in your freezer ( see directions for peeling and freezing ginger at the end of this post). Then , next time you need a piece, just go to your freezer.

How to Freeze Leftover Ginger:
If you don't use all of your ginger right away, place the peeled leftover ginger in a ziplock baggie and freeze it. It will stay fresh for about 6 weeks (or more) and will be available for your next recipe. Also, frozen ginger is easier to cut.
