Carrot And Ginger Soup Recipe


Carrot And Ginger Soup RecipeSoup is comfort food for me and I mostly make this when someone is not feeling well simply cause nothing is more comfort than having a hot, spicy, creamy soup do you agree?  Since we are falling sick one after another I rely mostly on soup as it's also very easy to prepare.  DH likes tomato soup any day so for him mostly I make that or I do some time Pappa Al Pomodoro aka tomato bread soup to have as dinner, this carrot and ginger soup I made as lunch to have it with bread toast last week.  
Normally I make carrot soup but some times I add ginger for that extra zing and since I was suffering from bad throat pain adding ginger seems just so right.  Spicy, creamy and light it was just perfect.  You don't have to be sick to enjoy the goodness of this delicious soup just try any time and you will like I am sure about that.  You can also play a little and add one or two extra ingredients like lemon, cilantro, mint etc all these adds wonderful flavor to the soup.

 Like I added sambar powder make it spicy but that's totally optional you can skip that and still enjoy this soup.  This soup is very creamy without adding any extra cream making it healthy the reason I dipped bread pieces in soup to show you guys how creamy it is.
