It has been SO COLD in Ohio. The temperature is not even getting above 20n degrees for the next week! These cold winter nights have me craving warm soups. While I would like to stay wrapped up in a hundred blankets and comfy socks, my job isn’t slowing down at all. So, I don’t really have time for all-day cooking sessions. That’s why this carrot ginger soup is such a souperstar. (yeah I just did that)
The only prep is a bit of chopping and a quick saute in the Instant Pot before you pressure cook the carrot ginger soup for 5 minutes. It’s SO easy and SO ridiculously fast!
The result is about six bowls of healthy, satisfying soup.
If you haven’t gotten on the Instant Pot train yet, don’t feel bad! I just took mine out of the box after owning it for two years! Seriously, I was a little intimidated by it. I watch a great how-to video by Well Done. And while I felt a little better about it, I wasn’t completely confident. I will say, I still have a healthy respect for the Instant Pot, but I am no longer afraid of it!
So, the next time one is on sale, grab it! It’s totally worth the precious minutes it will save you in the kitchen!Print
This carrot ginger soup is perfect for a weeknight dinner. Once you’ve chopped the veggies it’s only about 15 minutes from start to finish! Get ready for a healthy and extremely satisfying soup. Perfect with some rolls or bread for dipping!

An immersion blender is so nice to have! I got one years ago as a gift and I can’t believe how much I use it! So useful for soups or whipped cream or whipped coffees.
