My carrot soup recipe is one of my favourites despite not really being the biggest fan of carrots, unless they’re in a cake of course, and it is the perfect comforting lunch for a cold day. I’ve kept the recipe fairly simple and just added some ginger for warmth and coconut milk for a lovely creamy texture.

 I prefer my soup quite thick but if you prefer a runnier consistency just add more water. Alternatively if you like your soup to be really thick just reduce the amount of water used. The ginger in this adds lots of warming flavours and if you would prefer this with even more you can increase the amount used. If you fancy really taking this up a notch you could also add a fresh chilli, or even dried powdered chilli for convenience, if you want this carrot soup to pack more of a punch.

I have made this in a large saucepan and a soup maker before. I have written out the method for the version cooked on the hob so this recipe can be made by everyone, however, if you would prefer to make this in a soup maker you just need to add all your ingredients and leave it to do its thing.

I love this served topped with fresh coriander and thick buttered bread for dipping! If you like this recipe you may also like my Creamy Tomato Soup which you can find here.
