I don’t know about you, but I always have a bag of carrots in my crisper drawer. Even when I get to the point where I am all out of fresh lettuce and other vegetables, there is always that stand-by bag of carrots waiting to be used.

If this is you too, then I suggest you consider making this Instant Pot Carrot Ginger Soup! This is one of my easy lunch staple recipes, and it’s a great way to use up those ignored carrots. I used chicken broth to help increase the protein content of the soup, but you can use vegetable broth to make this recipe vegan or vegetarian.

Made in the Instant Pot, this recipe takes just about 40 minutes from start to finish. Best of all, you only need five ingredients.

When the soup is done cooking, use the quick-release or natural-release method to remove the lid.

Use a hand-immersion blender to blend the soup until smooth.

Pro Tips

  • If you use organic carrots, you don’t have to peel them.
  • You can always use a 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger if you don’t have fresh ginger on hand.
  • If you want even more flavor, add some crumbled, cooked bacon on top of the soup just before serving (skip this step for vegan or vegetarian).
  • If you don’t have a hand-immersion blender, you can also transfer the soup to a regular blender. Just be very careful about blending hot liquids (I always put a towel over the top of the blender in case there are any splashes).

Ingredients

Scale

  • 2 shallots or 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 1-inch piece of fresh ginger, skin removed and minced
  • 2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth (use vegetable broth for vegetarian)

Instructions
