Carrot Ginger Soup
Brava Chef Erin
This carrot ginger soup is super smooth and full of carrot flavor with a hint of ginger. This custom cook first cooks the onions, garlic and ginger in the Brava, then roasts the carrots and finally blends all of the ingredients together in a blender to make the soup. If you would like to make this soup vegetarian, you can use vegetable stock or water instead of chicken stock.
