Carrot Ginger Soup

Yep! I’m still eating mostly soft foods :(. But, this brightened my day yesterday. Carrots and Ginger are two of my favorites so the combo was perfect on a cold December day!

This is a warm, tasty soup and it would be a great side with pork tenderloin or a chicken dish!

Here are the ingredients (Makes 4 servings).

— 1 lb carrots, peeled and chopped

— 2 Tbsp minced ginger

— 1 shallot, minced

— 2 cups chicken broth

— 1/4 tsp coriander

— 1 Tbsp olive oil

— pinch of salt

— sliced green onions for garnish

Directions: In a pot, heat the olive oil over medium high. Saute minced shallot until tender. Add the ginger and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Add carrots, broth, coriander and salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook for another 15 minutes. Transfer to blender and puree. Pour into bowls and sprinkle sliced green onions on top.

Yea, it tastes better than it looks!

Yesterday was great! Started out with a good run with my mommy running friend and her son (Ellie Grace’s future boyfriend). A carroty ginger soup for [part of my] lunch. Then, we went to Ellie Grace’s first happy hour. After all, it is her birthday week! Several margaritas, great food and wonderful time with our friends later, we called it a night!
