Carrot Orange Soup with Ginger


Food confession…I have a soup fetish.

Soup is my comfort food no matter what time of year.  Whether it be silky creamy soups, hearty chunky veggie stews, chili or cold gazpacho, I’m always drawn to making soup.  Making soup is therapy for me.  I’m obsessed.

I have several soups that I make at home but, to be honest, I don’t use recipes.  So my goal from now on is to write down the recipes of soups I make so I’m able to share them with you. 

What’s your favorite soup?

Carrot Orange Soup


  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 sweet red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 lb. carrots, diced (peel skins if you’d like, I left mine on)
  • 2 tbsp. peeled and minced ginger
  • 5 C. broth
  • 1 C. coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp. orange zest
  • 1/2 C. freshly squeezed orange juice
  • Sriracha to taste (optional)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Sriracha cream garnish (optional)
  • Cilantro leaves garnish (optional)
  • Pickled ginger garnish (optional)


In a large soup pot heat olive oil over medium heat and saute onions and garlic until soft.  Season with salt and fresh cracked pepper.  Add bay leaf.  Next, add sweet red pepper, carrots and ginger and saute and additional 5-10 minutes, until carrots are soft.  Do not brown.

Add the broth and simmer over medium to medium low heat for approximately 20-25 minutes until vegetables are thoroughly cooked.

Take pot off the stove, fish out the bay leaf, and in small batches puree soup in a blender until smooth.  Return pureed soup back to the pot and add coconut milk (optional; add if you want a creamier soup with an Asian flair), orange juice and orange zest.  Season with salt and pepper and add a healthy squirt of sriracha, optional of course. I always add sriracha because I like to catch my mouth on fire.

Serve up soup in bowl and garnish with Sriracha Cream (1/4 C. sour cream mixed with a squirt of sriracha) and cilantro. 


serves 4-6

  • The Cocktail Lovers

    Keep sharing the recipes, we love (homemade) soup too but sometimes get a bit stuck for ideas. Favourites include roasted butternut squash with thyme and a smidge of ginger for kick; green pea and mint (the cheapest soup in the world EVER) and roasted red pepper, tomatoes and red lentils.
    We’ll be checking back for ideas! x

    • Dirt and Martinis

      Ooooh, thanks for telling me your favorites Cocktail Lovers! Green pea and mint sounds delicious! :-o

  • Nancy~The Wife of a Dairyman

    Gosh, my favorite is probably a toss up between French Onion or Clam Chowder….perfect for a rainy day like we’re having today in northern CA:)

    • Dirt and Martinis

      I know, isn’t it a dreary day Nancy? :-( My mom has an awesome clam chowder recipe that I want to share…if she’ll let me, haha!

  • Raquel

    Yum that sounds delicious! I usually stick with potato or I’m all about clam chowder but this could be a nice change of pace

    • Dirt and Martinis
