Nutmeg Carrot Ginger Soup Recipe

This nutmeg carrot ginger soup makes a delicious appetizer or a light lunch. Carrots come out nice and juicy on the grill and the spices enhance their flavor. Sugar is a popular ingredient in carrot dishes, especially in French cuisine, because the sweetness draws out the natural sweet flavor of the carrot.

If you were to look at carrot ginger soup history, you will find this soup to be medicinal and eaten as a tonic. This is a nutritious soup and it tastes great too. There are many different grilled vegetables you can use in grilled vegetable soup recipes but using simply carrots, broth, and spices gives this soup a particularly pure and uncomplicated flavor.

This recipe does not call for many ingredients so choose good quality ingredients to get the best result. Choose perfectly ripe carrots, nothing past its best, and do not swap the butter for margarine if you want this to be a high quality soup. You will find the earthy flavors of the spices complement the carrot flavor so well, and grilling the carrots just brings out their optimum flavor, adding a special smoky taste to the soup.

Something many people love about carrot soup recipes is the color. That bright orange is really appealing and actually green and orange are two colors which have been proven to stimulate the appetite, another reason to make this flavorful recipe and garnish the soup with parsley before serving.
