Many of the recipes that I cook include ginger, garlic or some combination of the two. Until I had this soup, I was always more “Team Garlic” than “Team Ginger.”
This soup is a great balance of its four main ingredients- ginger, shallots, carrots and potatoes. Each one plays a key role and does a great job contributing to the overall flavor of this soup. The intensity of ginger and garlic are balanced by the sweetness of carrots. The potatoes add some creaminess without cream.
Even the garnishes of peppery arugula and an optional swirl of coconut milk contribute to more than the visual aesthetics.
Anyone with access to fresh vegetables and a stove, regardless of cooking experience, can make this soup. Extremely flavorful, healthy, easy and tasty. Give it a try!
