Carrot Ginger Soup

Carrot and Ginger Soup Recipe

My amazing friend Whitney brought me this delicious soup right after I delivered my daughter and our whole family liked it so much that I had to ask her for the recipe.

In fact, as soon as I convince her to start a blog, I’ll be sharing all of her recipes because I’m yet to eat anything she makes that isn’t amazing (plus, she completely decorated her own house and it looks incredible.. she needs to blog! (*hint* hint* Whitney!)

Since it is made with a bone broth base (homemade or you can buy this great brand online), this soup is very nourishing and the natural sweetness of the carrots and sweet potatoes combine well with the savory broth. My kids all love this soup and have asked for it several times since then. It freezes really well, so I’ve started making double or triple batches so I have fast and easy meals on busy nights.

If this will be served on its own as a meal, pre-cooked chicken or nitrate-free sausage can be added for protein.
