Carrot Walnut Soup With A Hint Of Ginger

Fresh carrots and walnuts make a this great seasonal soup. This carrot soup is so easy to make; loaded with nutrition; and packed with taste.

It's creamy with a little texture and makes a hearty everyday soup. Don't relegate it to an every day meal, it's rich creaminess from the walnuts makes it fancy enough for a company dish.

Unlike many other cream soups, there is no cream in it, which makes it a heart healthy choice.

      @LiteraryMind: I almost always cook my vegetables by heating them a little, then removing them from the heat and letting them steam. I updated the instructions a little, to make it clearer that the cover stays on the pot.

      @anonymous: Yes and no. They are still on the stove covered until they cool and they soften up. In the covered pot they really are still cooking.

      I like to make a carrot soup with tahini. I know I'd like this one as the walnuts will stop the carrots making the soup too sweet.
