Ingredients

Measuring cup used 1 cup = 250 ml

  • 1 lb carrots diced (about 3 cups)
  • 1.5 tablespoon ginger minced
  • 1 medium onion finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter or olive oil
  • 1 bay leaf (optional)
  • ½ cup thick coconut milk
  • 2.5 cups water or vegetable stock

Toppings:

Instructions

Instant Pot Method:

  • Firstly, press SAUTE on Instant Pot. Add butter and once it’s hot add bay leaf, minced ginger, onions and saute till onions turn translucent.
  • Then add diced carrot, salt, crushed black pepper, water and give a stir.
  • Close the Instant Pot with pressure valve to Sealing. Cook on High Pressure for 5 minutes.
  • When the instant pot beeps, Let the pressure release naturally. Open the lid.
  • Remove Bay leaf and puree soup using a immersion blender until smooth. If you don’t have an immersion blender, puree in a blender in batches once slightly cooled. Then I usually sieve the puree and discard the residue but its totally optional.
  • Lastly, add coconut milk, adjust black pepper powder and salt, and mix well. Let the soup simmer for 2 minutes.
  • Carrot Ginger Soup is ready to serve.Garnish with your favorite toppings.

Stovetop Pot Method:

  • Follow the first two steps in a large saucepan, and then bring to a simmer and cook until the carrots are very tender. This should take about 20-25 minutes.
  • Once tender, using immersion blender puree carrots until smooth then stir in the coconut milk, and simmer for 2 minutes, and carrot and ginger soup is ready to serve.

Notes

I have prepared this dish in my electric pressure cooker, Instant Pot DUO60 6 QT.

Tips & Variations

    • Choose the fresh, sweet, and tender carrots to make this soup.
    • I have made this soup with coconut milk, but you can totally skip it.
    • Dried herbs like basil or thyme and dry spices like smoked paprika, chili flakes, or cumin powder are added for more flavoring.
    • You can also add garlic to this soup.
    • You can also add ¼ cup of potato to make it extra creamy.
