Like many of us are now, I’m craving comfort foods. Perhaps its the colder weather, perhaps its the Shady Hook tragedy, but this is a time when I’m craving comfort. And for my family, comfort = a warm bowl of fresh, homemade soup.
One of my fave soups is a carrot, ginger, cashew blend that’s super easy to make and is a perfect starter soup, or as a meal on its own. We tend to have a small cup of soup before our holiday meals, and while butternut squash is another favorite, this yummy carrot, ginger soup is a great alternative. For those of you who are following a raw diet, you can juice the carrots and add 1 whole avocado. Rather than sautéing the onions and spices, simply add them to the carrot juice and blend, though you may want to add pine nuts for an enhanced nutty flavor. I’ll follow this up with a full raw version, but for now, I’m sharing the cooked version as I’m craving warmth.
Remember, the cashews give this a creamy base without the need for dairy, or dairy replacers, but if you’re nut sensitive you can swap out the cashews for a cup ‘or so’ of your dairy free milk of choice ( I would suggest full-fat coconut milk).
I hope this simple recipe gives you some much needed warmth and comfort. Make an extra batch and share with friends and family. Give the gift of loving warmth with homemade soup. Enjoy!
