Healing carrot soup – helende wortelsoep (GF-DF-SF-V)


I just made this healing carrot soup for my sick son. After 2 days of not eating, because of vomiting and nausea, he is a bit better today and starts to eat again. Bit by bit, a cracker, some yoghurt with mashed banana, and of course soup.

Soup made with the best healing ingredient: Love.

Yesterday I bought these lovely looking and smelling carrots in 4 different colors. They look amazing, but they taste amazing too and made this beautiful, healing soup with just a few ingredients. I put in some fresh gingerroot to warm the belly and eases digestion.


His belly agreed totally after eating a whole bowl!

It’s a bit tricky to start eating again, the stomach is always protesting a little. For that reason I eat white basmati rice tonight to ease the irritation, with a little of the mildly spiced tomato dal from Lakshmi. She has such a beautiful blog, so be sure to have a look!

Healing carrot soup

500g carrots, cleaned and chopped in slices
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tbsp finely chopped, peeled fresh ginger
1 handful coriander stalks, chopped finely
1 l hot vegetable broth
1 bay leaf
1 tbsp orange juice

Heat some oil in a soup pan and softly bake the onion and ginger for 5 minutes. Stir from time to time.
Add coriander and carrots, stir well and bake together for another 2 minutes, than add the vegetable broth and bay leaf and bring to the boil. Let the carrots boil till they are tender.
Remove the bay leaf and make a smooth soup with a stick blender.
Before serving I squeezed in some orange juice, to give the soup a little lift.
Taste and add pepper and salt, if needed. You can garnish the soup with some coriander leaves. Enjoy!


Helende wortelsoep

500g wortels, schoongemaakt en in plakjes
1 middel ui, fijngehakt
1 el verse gember, geschild en fijngesneden
1 handvol koriandersteeltjes, fijngehakt
1 l hete groentebouillon
1 laurierblad
1 el sinaasappelsap

Verwarm wat olie in een soeppan en bak hierin de ui en gember, zachtjes, ongeveer 5 minuten. Roer af en toe.
Voeg koriander en wortelplakjes toe, roer goed door en bak nog enkele minuten zachtjes mee.
Voeg dan bouillon en laurierblad toe en breng het geheel aan de kook. Laat zo lang koken tot de wortels zacht zijn. Haal het laurierblad eruit en pureer de soep met een staafmixer.
Voor het serveren heb ik nog wat sinaasappelsap boven de soep uitgeknepen om een kleine extra smaaklift te geven aan de soep. Proef en breng eventueel op smaak met peper en zout.
Serveer de soep meteen en je kunt er nog wat korianderblaadjes over strooien.
 Geniet van deze eerlijke soep!
