Gingered Carrot Soup

My fantastic friend Jade shared this recipe with me and I am so thankful she did. I am not the biggest fan of ginger but this soup is so…calming? It was very comforting and it made my stomach feel so peaceful. My first go of it left the soup a little dry so it ended up as more of a puree. If you want a smoother consistency, add some more broth or water to the soup and blend again.
