This soup is one of my family's favorites, specifically my husband's. Sam loves him some carrot ginger. We've all been a bit under the weather and this spicy and creamy soup has been the perfect remedy. If you're feeling really indulgent... it goes incredibly well with a little rosemary sourdough grilled cheese. My favorite way to make a grilled cheese is in a cast iron skillet with a little butter and garlic salt and really sharp cheddar.
This soup is the perfect recipe to make on a sunday. Put on some lovely music and enjoy the process. Your entire house will surely smell amazing. It makes a pretty good batch too so it's also great for entertaining. Happy souping!
