Carrot Ginger Bisque

Maybe it’s the crisp weather that has finally come upon us, but I am in a cooking mood! I wanted to surprise one of my daughters with her favorite soup today, so I am going to share my recipe with you all.

The creamy texture of this soup is so filling and the warming spices of ginger, cumin and curry will warm you up even on the coldest of days.

  1. In a stock pot, melt butter and saute onions and garlic until soft.
  2. Add grated ginger and spices and stir well.
  3. Next, add carrots and vegetable stock and cook until carrots have softened. This will take about 20 minutes.
