Creamy Tomato and Carrots soup made with roasted vegetables, garlic, and spicy ginger. It’s paleo, whole30, and super warm and comforting. ♡
It’s cold and rainy over here in Maryland. I thought a nice, warm bowl of creamy tomato and carrot would fit the theme nicely.
The twins have been doing their online schooling and it’s been tough. Most days, they simply do not want to stare at a screen and I totally get it! I do my best to motivate them by offering a special snack like popcorn after each class session. Despite the circumstances, I am grateful everyone is healthy and safe.
Moving on, now let’s talk about the ingredients you will need.
Ingredients To Make Creamy Tomato and Carrot Soup
|Tomatoes||I used kumato purplish-black tomatoes. Though the color is dark and really beautiful, the taste is the same as other tomatoes.|
|Carrots||You will need four large carrots, washed, peeled, and sliced in half for quicker cooking.|
|Potato||I like using Yukon gold potatoes because they tend to be more creamier. You only need one that is washed and peeled.|
|Ginger||Will add spice and a nice earthy flavor.|
|Onion||Will add sweetness to the soup.|
|Garlic||Make sure to leave the skin on while roasting—this will prevent them from burning.|
|Vegetable Broth||This will help to add flavor and emulsify all of the roasted ingredients.|
|Other Essential Ingredients||Kosher salt, coarse black pepper, and extra virgin olive oil.|
Tips For Roasting Vegetables
Don’t do the mistake I made.
Leave the veggies whole: because we are roasting the vegetable at a high-temperature, keep the tomatoes whole because they will not survive in the oven —they will burn! And you don’t want that. The other veggies will hold up nicely.
Use plenty of fat: when drizzling olive oil over the vegetables, use your hands to coat each ingredients. Any spaces left without grease will dry out vs caramelize.
Skip the parchment paper: this applies to those who have a nonstick baking sheet. Skipping the sheet will help brown the bottom of the vegetables better. If you do not have a nonstick baking sheet, that’s ok, just make sure to use parchment paper and not foil. Potatoes stick to foil really badly.
I am so excited for you to try this Creamy Tomato and Carrot Soup recipe. ♡
Make it protein rich: you can definitely add cooked chicken, firm tofu, tempe, or even chickpeas to this soup. I would add the protein after the soup’s purred.
Add fresh turmeric: If you are looking to add an anti-inflammatory boost, add a tbsp or so of freshly grated turmeric right before blender ( I wouldn’t add dried turmeric).
Squeeze fresh lemon juice in it: this will give the perfect fresh flare and zing all soups can thrive from.
