Recently on my trip to my greengrocer, they had a great deal on fresh carrots.  Three for the price of one – now that normally gets my shopaholic heart racing, why on earth would I pass up on such a good deal – even if it is only carrots.

I had to take advantage of this awesome special and off I went, my usual box of peppers, pineapple and onions, some ripe tomatoes and of course – my three kilograms of carrots in the boot of my car.  To my hubbies disgrace, I had to find space in my fridge for all my veggies – and instantly heard a blabbering in the background about the unlikeliness of me using all these carrots before they start to shrivel up.

As hard as it is to admit that he is right – I had to admit that he is right…

I instantly thought of a delicious summery soup, and this recipe of Chilled Carrot and Ginger Soup took shape in my mind.  I have seen and heard the combination of carrot and ginger before, but I have never tried this myself.  I couldn’t wait!

Instructions
  1. In a medium saucepan, cover the carrots with the vegetable stock, add the celery, season with salt and pepper, add the ginger and cook until the carrots are soft.
  2. In a food processor, carefully blend the ingredients. Here I added my cream until I found a consistency I liked; keep on blending if you prefer more of a smooth texture.
  3. Transfer soup into a mixing bowl, cover and cool in the refrigerator until cold. Serve with celery sticks, garnish with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese and season with salt and black pepper.
