Coconut Carrot Ginger Soup

IMG_9002.jpg

Last winter I got this soup at Whole Foods and I fell in love with it! It is the perfect combination of creamy from the coconut milk, sweet from the carrots, and spice from the ginger! I have been trying to find a similar recipe so I can make this soup at home, and this is the closest I have come to it. This soup is perfect on a chilly day, with crunchy bread for dipping or with homemade grilled cheese. I hope you fall in love with this nutritious soup and enjoy it's unique and delicious flavor and warmth.
