Carrot Ginger Soup

31 Mar

I didn’t think I would like this, but I tried it because it is so healthy and super cheap to make.  I’m really glad I did!

**Serves 2**

1 pound of carrots, peeled and chopped
1/2 a yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
vegetable broth
dash of cream (optional)
fresh or powdered thyme
1 inch of fresh grated ginger
salt and pepper

In a large pot, melt some butter or heat up some olive oil.

Add in the carrots, onions, garlic, salt, pepper and ginger.

Cook until the onions are translucent, about 5-6 minutes.

Add in enough vegetable broth to just cover the veggies.

Let boil and simmer for 10-15 minutes, until the carrots are cooked all the way through.

Transfer in batches to a food processor or blender, and blend until smooth.

Transfer back to the pot, heat through.

If you want to add a touch of cream, remove from heat, stir it in, and then serve.
