This is so easy, fast, and soothing. It is so simple and you may have all the ingredients on hand. I get my carrots at the farmers market and I get a variety of all of them- purple, red, white, yellow. However, you can keep it simple and just use good ol orange! You have to love ginger and carrot together too, what a great combo. It is sure to warm you right up and if you pair this with a panini-you are set. Also, this soup is so good for you....I love using a sweet onion here too.
