I absolutely love carrot, ginger and orange soup so this recipe is no exception. Full of Vitamin C from the carrots it is great for all the family to stay healthy and provides a warm nutritious dinner that can still be healthy even when eaten with some crusty bread and butter!
Why this soup is great for all the family
A colourful but smooth soup is always appealing to children and with no lumps, it is one less thing for them to complain about. Give them this carrot, ginger and orange soup I am sure they will love it! Check out this vegan option too.
If they are not sure at first why not make them one of their usual meals and add a ramekin of this with some bread and call it a starter of bread and dipping sauce to see what they think? A great way of encouraging children to eat something new is to say it is mostly an adults-only food.

Another thing that often worked with Ben when he was younger was calling a food posh or expensive! It sparks their interest and makes them want to know what is so good about it.
When my sister was younger I remember we told her everything with herbs in had “French herbs” which she thought sounded good and tried!
Extra health benefits of this soup
Aside from this carrot, ginger and orange soup being low in calories and full of vitamins and minerals, it’s also full of syn free food. Here are some of the other health benefits you may not have realised.
Carrots contain high amounts of beta carotene, an antioxidant that your body converts to vitamin A. This is a vitamin that helps vision, skin, and the immune system. Why not have them in carrot cake too or baked oats.
Carrots have a low GI index so great for diabetics.
Ginger has many anti-inflammatory properties and can help reduce the pain of inflammations. Whilst, on the whole, you need large amounts to do this every little helps really I guess. Check out more about it here.
Ginger is commonly used to help prevent nausea. An example of this is with morning sickness ginger biscuits are often recommended. If you often suffer from nausea this could be worth trying.
A great alternative to this soup is with beetroot in something like this beetroot, orange and ginger soup for a different taste but similar nutrients!
