Easy Carrot Ginger Soup

Bright and creamy, mildly spiced and fragrant Carrot Ginger Soup is super nutritious and loaded with healthy ingredients. Enriched with healing spices – ginger and turmeric, this immune boosting soup is true comforting buddy perfect for all seasons. 

While the weather gets warmer here in Croatia, and the sun has FINALLY decided to show up  (yey for that! ), we continue to have hot soups for dinners, no matter the outside temperatures. Soup warm us nicely and actually serve as a comfort after a long day at work and in school. While we eat our daily soup, in our tummies, it creates a pleasant warmth, which overwhelms us – from the inside out. It gives us much needed energy boost. Afterwards we are pleased and we feel how our body is thanking us for that warm, comfy, healthy meal….. ZEN! …

Ok, now I’m making a bigger deal than it actually is…  but one is true. We do feel good, and we do love our soup. Soups are nutritious, good for our bodies and simply beautiful. Period. 

Soups are excellent warming meal during winter days. There is no doubt. But some soups can be served even on super hot summer days. Just such is this Carrot Ginger Soup that I share with you today. You can eat this soup year-round, regardless of the outside temperature, because it’s equally delicious served HOT and COLD.

To make this soup I used beautiful root veggies – carrots and celeriac (aka celery root) both now in season. In Croatia, stores are FILLED with this magnificent veggies. Shelves are literally bursting with yellow-orange and white colors. And the prices are so sooo low that I cry tears of joy every time I’m in the supermarket.  ….. Unfortunately, I have noticed that despite all their nutritional and health benefits, celeriac is a rather neglected vegetable. People just don’t know how healthy it is! And maybe the biggest problem is that people just don’t know how to use it and prepare it. I use celeriac fresh in salads, I stir fry it, and I cook delicious stews and soups with it.

Celeriac is powerful veggie, full of minerals – potassium, sodium, calcium, phosphorus, copper and iron, as well as vitamins C, E, K and vitamin B. It’s great for heart health. It lowers the blood pressure and blood sugar levels and is an excellent diuretic and urinary antiseptic (for those who have problems with bladder and inflammation << hmm ME ). Besides, celeriac is low-calorie veggie and full of high-quality fiber and thus an ideal for weight loss. Now tell me, did I just inspired you to cook with celeriac more? … yes I did… I know I did.. come here for a group hug! 

Ok, so I flavored this Carrot Ginger Soup with healing super spices – spicy fresh ginger, aromatic turmeric, and wonderfully fragrant cumin. Do you remember my obsession with turmeric and using it in EVERYTHING? … in smoothies, desserts, and in stews? Well, I’m still kinda obsessed.  But it’s all good… I didn’t turn all yellow … YET! Although my wooden spoons and kitchen cloths did. 

Did I mention how super simple this Carrot Ginger Soup is to make?! It can be done in only 30 minutes and that’s why it’s PERFECT for busy families who wants to eat healthy meal with the spoon during weekdays. Beside being super healthy and utterly creamy and delicious, this Carrot Ginger Soup is budget friendly too. A few carrots and a piece of celeriac will cost you almost nothing, and soup can stand in the refrigerator up for 3-4 days. When you get tired of this soup, just put it in a zip-lock bag and freeze it.

  1. I love quick and easy meals. Veggie, vegan, and gluten free! Wow. This is right up my alley.

  2. Actually, you have convinced me to give celeriac a try. It has always been on my list of things I wanted to try. Just never did. I love the turmeric and ginger also! Nice recipe!

  3. I’m loving the sound of this carrot ginger soup Natalie! And it would be perfect anytime of year as well since you could also eat it cold. Glad you’re finally getting a little sunshine 🙂

    • Yeees finally, the sunshine, oh how I missed the sunshine and warmer temperatures. I’m instantly in da mood for EVERYTHING hehe Thanks Stef. I’m glad you like the soup.

  4. I’m all about the bowl and this is such a beautiful soup! Thank you for the ideas for celeriac, I’ve never used it in a salad, but that is definitely going to change. Yummy recipe!!

  5. Yum I can’t wait to try this – I adore celeriac but don’t find myself using it very often. Time to fix that with this gorgeous soup! 🙂

  6. There’s no ginger in the ingredients list – is it ginger root or powder, and how much do you recommend?

    • Hi Emma! I corrected the ingredient list now. THANKS so much for letting me know 🙂 I used fresh ginger root, around 1 inch. If you like spicy soup you can use a bit more.

  7. This soup looks so great, Natalie! Also I think you nailed it with pairing the word ZEN with the soup! Zen soup it is! Because nothing beats a good bowl of hearty, healthy and delicious soup after a hard day. Or any day, for that matter 😉 Peace in tummy and mind, with your loved ones, what more can a girl want? 🙂

  8. Love the addition of ginger to add that extra bit of spice! Bet that would warm you on a cold day

  9. What a lovely healthy soup. I love that it is ready in a half an hour!

  10. We have had a very mild winter here. That works for me, but unfortunately the germs love it too. This soup sounds just like what we need to boost our immune system.

  11. I have been obsessed with easy soups lately. I will definitely be putting this recipe into our weekly lineup at home! 🙂

  12. I love that you used fresh ginger in this yummy soup as fresh ginger always imparts a more pronounced flavor thus adding depth of flavor! Love that it is both healthy and delicious!

  13. What a pretty, bright and colorful soup!! Love the flavor combination!

  14. This carrot ginger soup is delicious I love that you added cumin which goes well with carrot. I know it from the curries which I make. I can finish that soup bowl in a second.

  16. Mmm… this soup has it all! I love the combination of ginger and carrots. And the color is gorgeous!

  17. The soup looks so pretty and I so agree with you that we don’t use celery enough although it adds so much flavor + nutrients to the recipes. I would try the soup soon.

  18. I don’t believe I’ve ever had celeriac before. It is not very common in our stores in South Florida. Now, carrot and ginger soup…wow! Those flavors are so delicious together. Lovely recipe!

  19. In Romania soups are a must have at every single meal, no matter the season. They are so healthy and comfort you like nothing else. I love the colour of your soup, it is so inviting, and the taste must be amazing. I could have this anytime.

  20. I have to admit that I do not like the flavor of celeriac roots but maybe I have never used them in the right recipe. Love the beautiful color of the soup and turmeric is a great addition to the recipe.

  21. We love quick soups in our house. I’ve never tried celeriac root before but always looking to try new things.

  22. Oh, this is perfect timing! I’ve been looking for healthy recipes with Tumeric! Can’t wait to try it! 🙂
