Tips and Tricks

Cut Carrots the Same Size

I recommend cutting up all your carrots the same size—or, at least, similarly sized. The reason you want to do this is so all the carrots will get cooked the same. You don’t want some carrots to be undercooked and some overcooked. 

Flavor to Your Tastes 

Feel free to use the spices and herbs to flavor to your taste. Change up what you use or don’t use—don’t feel obligated to follow the amounts in the recipe exactly. This is all about personal preference. 

Dairy-Free Alternative 

For this recipe I am using almond milk. If you happen to not want almond milk, you can use any other dairy-free milk alternative. 

Coconut milk or even a soy milk could be great in this soup!

Variations

Spices and Herbs 

Feel free to adjust the spices and herbs to your preference. I love this ginger carrot soup as is, but feel free to add less or more of certain ingredients, or swap out the spices listed with spices you like to use. 

Leave out Almond Milk 

If you don’t want the soup to be creamy, you can opt to leave out the almond milk. The soup will still be tasty as is. The almond milk simply adds a nice creamy texture to soup. Without the almond milk, your soup will be more like a V8 drink, for example.

Orange Juice 

Try adding about 1/3 cup of freshly squeezed orange juice. This will add a nice citrus kick to the soup. 

Vegan Carrot Ginger Soup FAQs

How to store carrot ginger soup?

You can store this soup in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Just store it in an airtight container in the fridge. 

When you’re ready to eat it, you can eat the soup chilled or heat it up on the stove—or even in the microwave. 

Does carrot soup freeze? 

This soup is freezer friendly. Place soup in a proper freezer container, making sure to leave room at the top. The soup will expand a bit as it freezes, so you need to leave some room for expansion at the top of your container. Then freeze soup for up to 2 months. 

When you are ready to eat, thaw frozen soup overnight in the fridge or warm it up from frozen in the microwave or on the stovetop. 

Can I use mini carrots? 

If you have some mini organic carrots, go ahead and swap them out with the full size carrots. I recommend organic as they are pure carrots. Non-organic mini carrots are soaked in a chemical mixture which alters the flavor of the carrots a bit.
