This Roasted Carrot Soup is velvety smooth, so creamy, and loaded with flavor! It’s vegan, gluten-free, and super healthy!
I absolutely love soups because not only are they flavor bombs in a bowl but they are such a great way to pack veggies in…and this roasted carrot soup is no exception.
It’s vegan, gluten-free, healthy, so easy to make, and absolutely delicious!
This roasted carrot soup is subtly sweet from the carrots and onion, earthy from the ginger, and ultra-creamy thanks to full-fat coconut milk!
- Carrots – the MVP in today’s soup. Roasted carrots give a delicious sweet flavor and creamy texture.
- Yellow Onion – give the soup a layer of caramel-y flavor.
- Garlic – adds a subtle nutty flavor.
- Coconut Oil – used to roast the veggies. If you don’t like coconut oil, olive oil will also work.
- Vegetable Broth – a flavorful base for the soup. If you’re not vegan, feel free to use chicken broth instead.
- Coconut Milk – use full-fat coconut milk for an ultra creamy texture.
- Ground Ginger, Salt, and Pepper – a simple, earthy seasoning blend for the perfect amount of flavor.
- Toasted Cashews, Cilantro, Green Onion, and Cayenne – for serving, if desired!
How to make
This velvety smooth, ultra-flavorful soup takes just 10 minutes to prep!
- Place carrots, onion, and garlic onto a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat, drizzle with melted coconut oil, then roast in the oven for 30-50 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
- Place the roasted veggies in a high powered blender with 2 cups of veggie broth and ground ginger then blend until super smooth.
- Pour that mixture into a large stockpot and mix in additional broth and coconut milk. Bring to a simmer to thicken, season with salt and pepper, then serve and enjoy!
Do you have to roast the carrots?
Not necessarily. You can sauté or steam the carrots if preferred but I highly recommend roasting them.
The roasted carrots take on a deeper, caramelized flavor which is absolutely delicious for this soup!
Do you have to blend the soup?
You don’t have to but I highly recommend doing so. Blending the veggies with the broth makes the soup super velvety and creamy.
If you prefer a chunkier soup, place the roasted veggies directly in the stockpot with the rest of the ingredients or only blend a portion!
- Add a protein. Try roasted chickpeas, shredded chicken, or crushed bacon.
- Make it extra creamy. This soup is already creamy but if you prefer an even richer, creamier soup try stirring in a spoonful of plain non-dairy yogurt or, if not vegan, plain Greek yogurt.
- Spice it up. Give your soup a kick of heat with a sprinkle of cayenne or red pepper flakes.
- Make it curried. Give the soup an Indian-inspired twist by adding curry powder to taste.
