Gingered Carrot Soup

Recipe by LittleNico

Everyone always loves this soup, which I call my "winter cold fighting soup" because of the ingredients. I also love it because it costs next to nothing to make. The original recipe came from Vegitarian Times, January 2003.

It is a nice soup. I made the soup the first time in 15 March. We had it with toasted cherry tomatoes and cheese on ciabatta bread. Such a lovely lunch. However, as only my DH and I had the lunch, we cut it to 1/6. Also, in order to speed up, I boiled the rice in half vegetable, half chicken broth while I was dealing with the vegetables. When I made it the second time, I added 1 tablespoon of oat with the rice for each serving so as to have some water-soluble fibre which mixed well. My DH and I will surely have it again soon. Thank for sharing.
