Special note from the recipe creator, Elizabeth Lee:
“Healthy, delicious and velvety; this versatile carrot-ginger soup is perfect for any occasion. It can be served hot or cold and I must admit that I love it chilled, as it is so light and refreshing. The refreshing taste of the ginger and combined with the sweet carrot is sure to please any palate. This recipe is a staple in my kitchen. If serving chilled, refrigerate at least two hours before service. “
