Limited - Carrot-Ginger Soup with Roasted Vegetables TOM D'INTINO/for PhillyVoice

Looking for something healthy to warm you up during the cold winter months? Add carrot-ginger soup with roasted vegetables to this week’s lunch menu. Made with fresh carrots, acorn squash, broccoli, and cannellini beans, this creamy recipe is full of flavor, high in protein and fiber, and simple to make.

Carrot-Ginger Soup with Roasted Vegetables – makes 4 servings

3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
2 scallions (white and light green parts only)
2 tablespoons of fresh ginger, roughly chopped
2 garlic cloves, smashed
5 carrots, chopped
1 14-ounce can of light coconut milk
1 15-ounce can of cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
½ acorn squash, seeded and chopped in ¾ inch pieces
3 cups of broccoli florets (chopped)


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large wide pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the scallion whites, ginger and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in the carrots and season generously with salt and pepper. Add the coconut milk, beans with their liquid and 3 cups water. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Uncover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the carrots are very tender, 18 to 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, toss the squash, broccoli and bread with the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast, stirring, until the vegetables are tender and browned, and the bread is toasted, about 15 minutes.
  3. Puree the soup with an immersion blender (or transfer to a regular blender in batches and puree); season with salt and pepper. Divide the soup among bowls. Drizzle with olive oil and top with the vegetable-crouton mixture and scallion greens. Serve with crusty bread.
