*Carrot & Ginger Soup

Carrot & Ginger Soup
(serves about 4)

- 1 1/2 lb carrots; peeled & sliced
- 2 onions, chopped
- 1 inch of fresh ginger, grated
- 1 tbsp coconut butter (or ghee)
- 4 cups vegetable stock (or water)

In a medium/large soup pot, melt the coconut butter over medium heat & saute onions for about 5 minutes (keep turning them so they don't brown). Then add the carrots & ginger and cook for another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add the stock or water and bring to a boil, then simmer gently for about 15 minutes (or until the carrots are tender).

Allow the soup to cool, then puree in a blender or food procesor. When serving, garnish with a 'swirl' of plain yogurt (if you can tolerate it).

This is one of my favorite soup recipes, which I got from a friend but modified for the CRC diet. You can also try using parsnips instead of carrots, and maybe adding a little curry seasoning to the onions when you saute them.

(Note: the original recipe only called for 1 onion and 1 teaspoon of ginger; I added an onion because I think it sweetens it, and I added extra ginger because I really like ginger!)

Hi Bella!

You're like me...searching through the wonderful archives of creative recipes!

Just wanted to mention.....in case you missed this as I initially did. Raw adult carrots are an 'ok' food. But cooked carrots and likely baby carrots are limit foods. I would caution against the soup in large doses, especially in phase 1.

However, I would imagine that the Carrot Ginger combination would be wonderful! Before I was on this diet, I loved Carrot Apple Ginger juice! mmmmm....too bad I can't have fruit yet.....
Hi InThePink!

Good point about limiting and it doesn't surprise me, this soup seemed to good to be true. In fact I haven't had sugar in so long that it tastes like like dessert. How much is considered a limit serving with this do you think? Like 1 cup or is that even too much? You can only have 1 portion of limit per day right? The Limit portions are tricky to figure out (maybe it's just me!)

Thanks Big Grin
