Spicy Carrot and Ginger Soup
A healthy and hearty winter warmer, the ideal family supper for the colder months
Ingredients:8 large carrots 2 large onion 4 sticks of celery 2 cloves of garlic 2 thumb sized pieces of ginger 3.5 litre veg stock 2 tbsp BeLOVeD Date Nectar bunch coriander 100ml sour cream
- Pre-heat the oven to 180°C. Peel the carrots, put in a large roasting tin and cover with a good pinch of Maldon sea salt and the BeLOVeD Date Nectar. Place in the oven for 25 mins, tossing regularly.
- Cut the onion and celery into large chunks and soften in a large saucepan with 2 tsp coconut oil and crushed garlic. Finely grate the ginger. When the veg has softened, add the roasted carrots to the saucepan with the ginger.
- Add the stock and turn to a low simmer for 20 mins. Use the stick blender to blend the soup to your preferred consistency (thick works well for this one).
- Chop the coriander and sprinkle on top with a dollop of sour cream for a nourishing winter warmer.
