This carrot apple ginger soup will be the perfect side dish for any meal. Plus, it’s vegan!

Sometimes your meal just needs a little color, and this soup has just that. Soup is a perfect way to start a meal. Because it’s liquid based, it helps to fill up your stomach so you eat less of the higher calorie foods at dinner.

The carrots, apple, and ginger cook down beautifully in this soup and provide a number of nutrients that your body will love you for. The apple gives it the perfect touch of sweetness you need to help balance the naturally spicy taste of the ginger.

The large amount of carrots in this soup give the soup tons of fiber plus beta carotene. Beta carotene has been shown to be beneficial for wound healing and for improving your eyes.

Carrots are also rich in vitamin K, vitamin B8, pantothenic acid, folate, potassium, iron, copper, and manganese.

Ginger has long been used for it’s medicinal properties. For centuries it has been used to relieve digestive issues such as nausea, loss of appetite, motion sickness and gas pains.



Ginger can also help to reduce exercise-related muscle pain and pain due to arthritis. This is because ginger is an extremely powerful anti-inflammatory.

Research has even shown that ginger is 10,000x better at treating cancer than chemotherapy.

This soup is thick, creamy, and completely vegan. I’ve also tried a variation of this soup using chicken broth. I do find that it is a bit more flavorful, and if you buy Trader Joe’s brand organic low sodium chicken broth, the soup will also be lower in sodium.

However, because of this soup’s naturally high amount of potassium, the sodium content isn’t too much of a big deal. The higher amount of potassium acts as a natural diuretic and helps to flush any excess sodium out of your body.
