This Carrot Ginger Soup is the perfect dish for a dreary winter day. Aside from having a vibrant saffron hue that makes it look like a bowlful of sunshine, it also has a permeating warmth thanks to the ample addition of ginger and turmeric. You can literally feel yourself warming up from the inside out as each spoonful of soup goes down.<br /><br />Because there aren’t many ingredients in it, the trick to infusing the soup with a ton of flavor is to caramelize the carrots and onions. This gives the soup a marvelously mellow sweetness that balances out the oodles of savory umami created by the Maillard reaction.<br /><br />Using a stick blender will result in a rougher texture, while pouring this into a high speed blender will result in a more creamy texture. Personally, I like how light the soup is despite feeling velvety rich, but if you’re looking for something a bit more creamy, throw in a handful of raw cashews before blending the soup. They not only lend a fair bit of umami and sweetness to the soup, they’ll also make it super creamy.<br /><br />I garnished this with mint to mix into the soup, but it’s also delightful with cilantro, parsley, or other green herbs. Lastly, a squeeze of lemon or lime is a great way to add a last minute accent, or to change up any leftovers.<br /><br />You can literally feel yourself warming up from the inside out as each spoonful of this carrot ginger turmeric soup goes down.
