How do I make hot ginger soup

Oriental carrot - ginger soup with pomegranate seeds

Perfect for the cold season: this carrot-ginger soup is quick and easy to make and adds a lot of color to the soup bowl! Topped with coriander, mint and pomegranate seeds simply delicious. Cooked in under 30 minutes and therefore perfect for your after-work kitchen.

What is better than a warming soup in bright colors to meet the dreary November ?! Perfect to face the sad gray in gray and a lot of rain. The time of colorful leaves and autumn delights is over and the pre-Christmas season with the cozy cookie-baking evenings and Christmas markets is not quite here yet. Time to change that and bring some color into play with my oriental carrot and ginger soup! With selected ingredients it is also super healthy!

Ginger for the immune system

Especially on cold autumn or winter days, it can't hurt to give the immune system a boost. In order not to get sick in the first place, I regularly prepare ginger shots or drink a hot lemon. Ginger promotes the immune system and can thus support us against pathogens. That's why the small tuber likes to move into my saucepan, as with this recipe for my carrot ginger soup. I think the sharp, spicy taste goes great with the oriental note with lemon, turmeric, cumin and paprika. The whole thing becomes perfect by adding the fresh coriander. Love it!

Brightly colored carrot-ginger soup: vegan and made super easy

And since changes always start with small steps, let's start today with a soup that immerses your evening in a colorful light: An oriental-inspired carrot-ginger soup garnished with pomegranate seeds. And if - like me - you can't get enough of soups (I actually like to eat soups even in midsummer), I can recommend my following alternatives:

I made the colorful carrot ginger soup with coconut milk. So it is also great as a quick dinner for vegans. And like all my recipes, it is of course gluten-free.

Ingredients for the soup with an oriental touch

After the super fluffy cauliflower soup, which heralded the start of the soup season at the beginning of November and came in a delicate cream, it is definitely stronger today. Both visually and in terms of taste. In addition to carrots and sweet potatoes, the basis for the recipe for the carrot ginger soup are various spices:

  • Onion, garlic and ginger are sautéed with the orange vegetables and deglazed with broth and coconut milk.
  • Fresh turmeric provides the bright yellow color.
  • Lemon juice, cumin and rose-hot paprika give the whole thing an oriental note.

Season everything in the pot and put it in the bowl. When serving, we add a little freshly plucked coriander and mint to the soup bowl. And pomegranate seeds. They give the whole thing a fruity crunch. I think that a slice of toasted grain bread or walnut baguette goes perfectly with it. Those who prefer a low carb carrot ginger soup simply do without the bread side dish. Your quick dinner (or lunch) is ready. Have fun trying it out and enjoy it!
