This Thai ginger carrot soup is super comforting, healthy & ready in 30 minutes if you use a pressure cooker. The flavors are bold, the texture is creamy, the recipe healthy and it becomes a complete meal if you top it with some noodles!
I apologize if its not soup season in your part of the world but we are experiencing what we call 'Bangalore weather'. Which basically means that it's pleasant enough to pass on the salad and skip to soup instead.
And I'm not complaining either because I'm in love with this utterly delicious Thai ginger carrot soup that takes all of 30 minutes to make. And is the most satisfying thing in the world right now.
I made such a big batch on Tuesday that I ate it for three days straight, and now that it's over I'm wishing it wasn't.
Recipes like this carrot soup are such a must have in your back pocket. Because when you have nothing in your refrigerator except ginger, carrots and onions, you can whip this up. And dinner is ready. Or lunch. Or a snack. It never fails to satisfy.
Also I made this Thai ginger carrot soup in the pressure cooker. Which makes cooking this super easy. And if you have an immersion blender, this carrot soup also becomes one pot, because you can just blend everything in the pot.
This is one of those recipes that gives me the warm, fuzzy feels. You get yourself some in a mug if you want to warm your hands while you sip on it (yessss that feels sooo good), or pour yourself a ladleful in a bowl, and top it up with some noodles or rice + crushed peanuts + chopped cilantro + big squirt of lime juice, and you have a meal thats suddenly phenomenal and comforting at the same time.
Are you getting the feels too?
BTW if you have an electric pressure cooker or an Instant Pot, this only takes 15 minutes to make which is even faster than 30 minutes. Which is pretty amazing for a thick, creamy and healthy meal that can feed the entire family!
Can you make this Thai ginger carrot soup on the stovetop instead?
Absolutely, all you have to do is saute the thai red curry paste in a little oil, and then dump everything else, along with water or broth and simmer everything till the carrots are tender. Once it cools a bit, blend and enjoy!
Also, before I go, I have to mention this. Denver's reaction when I told him there was carrot soup --> 🤢🤢🤢 and Denver's reaction after he tasted this Thai carrot soup --> 👌👍🙌👏👅 so this carrot soup is vegan, healthy, spicy and husband approved.
