This quick and easy 7 ingredient carrot ginger soup is one of my favourite Syn free recipes to warm up any Grey winter day. It’s creamy and refreshing but above all it’s a filling meal, full of speed and perfect when following the Slimming World plan or a calorie controlled diet.
It feels like I am forever left with a big bag of carrots at the end of every week. Mainly because I am terrible and always wasting food. I start the beginning of the week with good intentions of filling my plate full of speedy vegetables each day but in fact I lose interest after a few days and my fridge will be full of unused vegetables on Friday. So I have started looking for new recipes that will use up leftover vegetables to save them going in the food waste bin!
This super quick and easy carrot ginger soup recipe is full of flavour, creamy and only uses 7 inexpensive ingredients. The ginger gives the soup a delicious fresh taste and the garlic gives it depth of flavour. The whole family will enjoy and it’s perfect reheated from the fridge for a quick and easy lunch.
