Did you know ginger is good for sea sickness? I read that recently. If I ever go on a cruise I will eat this soup before and after. Before to combat sea sickness and after to lose weight!

There is quite a lot of goodness going into your soup here! Reading the title, I thought it was going to be a very basic (and maybe a bit bland) one but reading the ingredients I know it sure isn't. And wow isn't the colour beautiful?
Really like the first photo with the contrast between orange and green. :)

Carrot and ginger are two of my favorite flavors. I have often found that - for some reason - carrot soup doesn't even need any cream in order to be thick and delicious, but cream is certainly a decadent and welcome addition!

I thought I hated carrot soup. Then, one day, I roasted them and made a similar soup, with ginger. Who knew? Carrot and ginger soup is so good!

The sound of the ginger in this is intriguing! I love soup meals and even that that same cookbook. I'll have to try this recipe when the fresh carrots hit the farmers' market.

Carrot and ginger - perfect!! Though I might have to risk the calories and add a little Greek yogurt on top. Just a little though. Like a half a cup or so...just kidding! Thanks for sharing:)
