  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced or pressed
  • 2 lb carrots, peeled, sliced
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated or 1 tsp powdered
  • 1 navel orange, peeled or 1/2 cup orange juice


  • In a medium soup pan, heat 1 tbsp of coconut or olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onions and let cook for 2-3 minutes to soften.
  • Add the garlic and stir to combine and keep from browning, cook another minute.
  • Add the sliced carrots, ginger and vegetable broth just enough to cover the carrots. Bring to a simmer and let cook for about 30 minutes, until carrots are tender.
  • When carrots are tender, add the coconut milk. If using full fat, let the solid coconut cream melt. then remove from the heat.
  • Transfer half of the carrots and broth to a blender and add the peeled orange or orange juice. If your blender top has a vent hole or removable center piece, remove it and cover with a kitchen towel to allow steam to release. Blend on low, gradually increase to high for about a minute. Blend remaining soup until smooth and creamy and combine in a serving pot.
  • An immersion or stick blender can be used; however, the texture will not be quite as smooth.
  • Garnish with pumpkin seeds or gluten free croutons if you want a little crunch.
