How to make this Vegan Carrot Ginger Coconut Soup
To make this vegan Carrot Ginger Coconut Soup, you will require a medium-sized pot. I always prefer deeper pots. I feel it is much easier to work with them without the soup splattering about.
Add two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil to the pot. Next, saute the shallots, garlic and ginger. Add the carrots, stock and coconut milk then mix them up using a wooden spoon. Cover and let simmer for about 15 minutes.
TIP: Check whether carrots are done after about 10 minutes. You can do this by pricking one carrot with a fork or using a wooden spoon to see whether the carrots are soft and break easily.
Once carrots are well done, use an immersion blender to blend until creamy and smooth. Don't worry if you do not have an immersion blender. You can just transfer the soup to a normal blender and blend until smooth.

- Add the rest of the vegetable stock and coconut milk, cover and let simmer for 15 minutes, or until the carrots are tender. Check and mix using a wooden spoon when halfway cooked.
- Use an immersion blender to blend until smooth and creamy. You could also transfer the soup to a blender and blend until smooth. Add the orange juice, grated orange rind and adjust accordingly for salt.
- Serve into bowls. You can garnish this soup with some chopped chives or coconut cream. This is totally optional, feel free to use what you like.
- If you find the soup too thick you can always make it lighter by adding some more vegetable stock or water.
- If it’s too thin you can thicken it by mixing 1-2 tablespoons of tapioca or arrowroot starch with an equal amount of water then add this mixture to the soup. Use a whisk to mix.
