Creamy Coconut Carrot Soup is made with ingredients like ginger, turmeric, lime and, of course, carrots. This anti-inflammatory soup is packed with nutrients and good flavour!
Creamy Coconut Carrot Soup is easily one of our favourite soups to enjoy year round in our house! My husband and I make it at least once a month if not more than that! It is incredibly easy to make with ingredients that are easy to find in your grocery store no matter the season. We often have everything on hand and so it is easy to decide to whip it up on a whim!
Creamy Coconut Carrot Soup: Healthy Benefits and Dietary Restrictions
There are a number of reasons we love this soup. In addition to it being just so freakin delicious, it is also so healthy! Carrots boost a number of health benefits due to the beta carotene, fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants they pack. Additionally, this soup includes onions, coconut milk, ginger, turmeric and lime which only increase the nutritional value of this soup! In the end, you are left with a flavourful soup that you can feel good about eating!
Creamy Coconut Carrot Soup is Vegan and Gluten-free!
This soup is vegan and gluten-free as is. No need to make any substitutions! While I am not vegan, my husband and I love to include vegan and vegetarian options into our diets regularly and limit our consumption of animal products. Soups like this one are always one of our favourite ways to enjoy ‘Meatless Monday’!
Low FODMAP Diet
The soup can also be made low-FODMAP by simply leaving out the onions in the recipe. Onions are high FODMAP but all of the remaining ingredients work well on a low-FODMAP diet. Excluding them from the recipe doesn’t alter the taste and you are still left with a flavourful, delicious soup! While undergoing this diet a few years ago, this was one of my favourite recipes to make!
