Spunky Ginger Carrot Soup.
This recipe is pretty versatile, and is, as my sister Kelly calls it, a bare pantry recipe, as it entails very minimal ingredients, ones that people generally have in the house, and all frugal ingredients.
~20 cups of chicken broth (I used broth left over from cooking my chicken gizzards; you can use broth made from chicken carcasses or drippings, or use veggie or beef broth.)
2 lbs carrots
1.5 inch piece of ginger, peeled and sliced (or equivalent amount of dried ginger)
1 large onion
Salt to taste
1. Combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil. If you chop the carrots and onions first, it'll cook faster, but it isn't necessary.
2. When all the ingredients are soft, whiz with your blender stick or in a blender.
3. Add salt to taste.
See- so easy, so simple! But at the same time, oh so yummy!
Do you ever make ginger carrot soup? Do you add any more ingredients or is it also as simple as this? What is your "bare pantry supper", what you make when your pantry is empty and you desperately need to go grocery shopping?
