Carrot Ginger Soup with Avocado Toast

RECIPES – SOUPS, VEGAN

There’s nothing more amazing in fall than a bowl of hot soup and some toast. This Carrot Ginger Soup with Avocado Toast is perfect for a chilly night.

This carrot ginger soup recipe comes together super fast. Its thick consistency pairs well with the avocado toast, which is equally creamy and tasty. (If you’re like me, you’ll want to dip your toast in the bowl to soften it….the best).

I am currently obsessed with the gluten-free bread from Le Pain Quotidien. It’s usually sold out by the end of the day (or even mid-afternoon) so make sure you go early in the day to get it.

Health & Beauty Benefits

Carrots: Carrots get their beautiful orange hue from the antioxidant beta-carotene, the precursor to Vitamin A. Once ingested, the beta-carotene is either converted into Vitamin A, or used as an antioxidant to protect cells from the damaging effects of free radicals. Vitamin A is a beauty nutrient, which is necessary for clear, blemish-free skin.

Ginger: Ginger provides anti-inflammatory benefits and soothes the digestive tract. It is also a powerful supporter of the immune system, and exhibits antibacterial and anti-fungal effects. In a season full of sniffles, consider adding ginger to your diet on a regular basis to help ward off minor bugs.

Ingredients

Carrot Ginger Soup

Garnish

Avocado Toast (per person)

Instructions

  • First, make the soup. On the stove-top, heat a large stockpot over medium heat. Add the oil, and then the onion and garlic.
  • Cook for 2-3 minutes before adding the carrots and ginger. Sweat for an additional 5 minutes before adding the broth.
  • Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to a simmer for 15 minutes or so, until the carrot is soft and easily pierced with a fork (the smaller you dice the carrots, the faster they will cook).
  • Carefully pour the soup into a blender (you’ll need to do two batches) and blend until you get a smooth, velvety texture. When blending hot liquids, only fill the blender half way, remove the clear center piece in the lid, place a dish towel over the opening and hold it with your hand as you blend; this way, you’ll allow the steam to release.
  • Pour into a bowl or container, then repeat with the other half.
  • You can serve as is or garnish with a few chopped basil leaves or pumpkin seeds.
  • Meanwhile, while the soup is cooking, make the toast. Toast two slices of bread per person. In a bowl, mash together the avocado, red onion, lime juice, red pepper flakes and salt to taste. It should become a chunky, guacamole-type consistency. Slather on toast.
