Carrot, ginger and coconut immune boosting soup
This delicious carrot soup ticks all the boxes when it comes to immune-boosting goodness.

Carrots are high in carotenoids (Vitamin A) which are natural antioxidants great for supporting a strong immune system. We've also combined garlic, onions and ginger which not only add to the flavour but also contain nutrients that help the immune system fight germs.

Serves: 3-4
Preparation: 15 min
Cook: 30 min

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 3 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 2 cups chopped carrots (approx. 3 medium carrots)
  • 1½ teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 3 to 4 cups vegetable broth
  • Sea salt and fresh black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup (optional) coconut milk for garnish (optional)

Method

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onions and a generous pinch of salt and pepper and cook until soft and translucent.
  2. Add the garlic and carrots to the pot and cook for about 8 minutes more, stirring occasionally.
  3. Stir in the ginger, then add the apple cider vinegar, and 3 to 4 cups of broth, depending on your desired consistency. Reduce to a simmer and cook until the carrots are soft, about 30 minutes.
  4. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly then transfer to a blender. Blend until smooth. Taste and add a little more salt and pepper if required. Add maple syrup here if you choose to include.
  5. Serve with a drizzle of coconut milk.
