A delicious carrot-ginger soup with vegetable broth and cream.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 pounds carrots, cut into medium dice
- 2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 4 cups vegetable broth
- 2 cups half-and-half

Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir onion until translucent and tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in carrots, ginger, and vegetable broth, and simmer for 20 minutes, or until carrots are tender. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
