Carrot, Ginger & Sweet Potato Soup


Following on from the honey roasted carrots I posted earlier in the week, here’s a recipe in which they work wonderfully.  This soup is made with carrots, ginger and sweet potato and brings me so much comfort on a cold day.

The last week or so winter has been getting to me. All I want to do is eat soup and get warm and cosy. I was so happy on my yoga teacher training course, on top of being completely immersed in yoga I was able to enjoy a warm heated studio all day. It was bliss. Now I’m back in the office and most days I sit there with a fleece, scarf and fingerless gloves on!

That said, compared to the Polar Vortex in the USA, London isn’t really that cold. I hope all of you suffering from cold weather are keeping warm and eating lots of soup to make you happy!

Mostly, I like my soup to be thick, packed with vegetables and loaded with flavour. For that this soup is a real winner and absolutely delicious. It’s made with honey roasted carrots and sweet potatoes seasoned with paprika and cayenne pepper. The vegetables are blended with a beautiful vegetable stock that includes lots of ginger and other yummy spices. This soup is so creamy, it’s hard to believe there isn’t a drop of cream or milk in it.

If you’re looking for a soup that’s incredibly comforting and delicious, I promise you’ll love this!

On that note, I’m off to make to make some more :)

    My friend has a very bad swollen, sore throat. I made this soup for dinner, tonight. I have never made carrot soup. It was absolutely delicious. Thank you so much for sharing.

      Wonderful, I hope your friend feels better soon. How lovely of you to take her some soup when feeling unwell.

    Thank you for this recipe! I had some sweet potato, carrot and ginger soup in a favorite restaurant. It was so good I wanted to try my hand at making my own. I found your recipe, followed the directions exactly and it was delicious– just as good as in the restaurant if not better! Thank you!

    this looks so good! I have a question though. Do you add the sweet potatoes to the carrots ? Or are they separate?

    • Casey February 7, 2017, 4:36 pm

      Do you mean when they are baking?

    Super yummy!! One of my daughters kept stealing the cooked yams ( I used yams, not sweet potatoes) before I had a chance to blend them with other ingredients so I am roasting her some more with same seasoning to eat by themselves. I followed recipe except for adding a can of coconut milk. I will definitely be making this more throughout fall and winter. Thanks for sharing!!
