Caribbean Carrot-Ginger Soup

20 January 2021

I developed this recipe while in the Dominican Republic. Living in a small, rural beach town, I had to be resourceful with ingredients that were available and affordable. Carrots grow like crazy there, so this was an easy, delicious recipe that I used to make for my friends during the rainy season. It’s the first recipe I really ever developed myself, and I still love it. Garnish as desired with microgreens, chopped chives, toasted sliced almonds, or chia seeds.

We’re doing a very fresh twist on the classic cream of tomato soup with a grilled cheese sandwich. Since we’re using fresh tomatoes at their peak of vine-ripened goodness, this simple soup is going to be not quite, but almost, 100% tomato.

Homemade vegetable soup utilizing frozen veggies that is packed full of flavor and on your table in less than 45 minutes. I love a good homemade vegetable soup and find myself buying frozen veggies just so I can make this. Eliminate the celery and there is no chopping whatsoever. It doesn’t get any easier than dumping it all, giving it a stir, and walking away.
