This soup is smooth, creamy and thick and can be served hot or cold. This makes it perfect for warming winter nights or cooling summer days.
Ingredients
  • 30g Coconut oil
  • 1 Large onion finely chopped
  • 10cm (4 inches) Ginger peeled and thinly sliced
  • 3 Cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1kg Carrots, roughly chopped
  • 1lt (4 cups) Chicken stock (or vegetable stock if you're vegetarian or vegan)
  • 500ml (2 cups) Water
  • Sour cream and fresh dill to garnish
Instructions
  1. Finely chop the onion and thinly slice the garlic and fresh ginger.
  2. Roughly chop the carrots and measure out the chicken stock and coconut oil.
  3. Melt the coconut oil over medium high heat and add the onion, garlic and ginger. Reduce the heat to medium low and sauté the vegetables for 8 to 10 minutes until the onion is absolutely tender.
  4. Add the carrots, stock and 2 cups of water to the wok.
  5. Increase the heat to bring this to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer the mixture for 35 to 40 minutes until the carrot is absolutely tender.
  6. Turn off the gas, or remove the wok from the heat.
  7. Use your stick blender to machine the soup until it is very smooth. You can also do this in a stand blender, however you will need to cool the mixture substantially before doing this, and then reheat it after blending.
  8. Serve the soup hot or chilled topped with sour cream and sprigs of fresh dill.
