Ingredients

  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced

  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil

  • 2 tbsp coarsely grated ginger

  • 1 large onion chopped

  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg

  • 500g carrot (organic, if possible)

  • 400g can cannellini beans

  • 850ml vegetable stock

Directions

  • You need to heat up the oil, ideally in a large pan.
  • Add the onion, garlic & ginger, after that fry for five mins.
  • Mix the nutmeg and cook for another minute. Add in the stock, carrots and also the beans (no need to drain the liquid.) Cover and simmer for 20-25 mins until the carrots are nice and tender.
  • Scoop a 1/3 of the mixture into a bowl, then use a hand held blender to make as smooth as possible. Add all the ingredients back into the pan and heat until bubbling. You can top off the soup with nutmeg/almonds.

Notes

  • Some people note they couldn’t taste the sweetness of the carrot, hence why it is suggested to use organic carrots.
  • This is absolutely delicious! You will notice how creamy and bright the dish is. When you’ve combine the ginger and nutmeg you’ll notice the carrots really shine through. Some people add a tsp of chilli flakes to add that extra oomph.
