Creamy Carrot Soup (paleo, vegan)

This easy Creamy Carrot Soup with ginger and coconut milk requires only a handful of basic ingredients and not much time to prepare. Healthful, flavorful, vegan, and paleo, this is a something-for-everyone comfort food!

During the fall and winter when it gets dark early and the weather is chilly, I love curling up to bottomless bowls of soup.

Creamy vegetable soups are some of my favorites! Sweet Potato Soup always gets the limelight, but I enjoy creamy carrot soup even more! 

Carrot soup is naturally sweet, a touch earthy, and pairs magnificently with Thai flavors like ginger, cumin and coconut milk. That’s the route I’m taking with this carrot ginger soup recipe!

The recipe contains no cream, butter or oil. Simply all squeaky clean ingredients that leave you feeling nourished and happy.  The texture is pillow-y smooth and the flavor is sweet and subtly curry-like with a little kick. 

Let’s dive in to the details!
