Roasted Carrot and Ginger Soup with Lentils

© 2022 |

© 2022 |

Creamy, delicious and warming, this hearty roasted carrot and lentil soup is bursting with flavour and makes the perfect meal with some home-baked bread for chilly winter nights. It's ready in under an hour, plus it's dairy and gluten-free.

  • 700 g / about 6 Large carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Fennel seeds, crushed
  • 4 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 Yellow onion, peeled and chopped
  • 3 Garlic cloves, sliced
  • 2 tbsp Ginger, coarsely grated
  • 1 tsp Turmeric
  • 3 Thyme sprigs, plus extra sprigs to serve
  • 1.2l Homemade broth
  • 150 g Dried lentils (I used black lentils)
  • 450 ml Water
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Place carrot, fennel seeds and 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a bowl, then season and toss. Tip onto a baking tray and roast for 30 minutes or until tender.
  2. While carrots are roasting, cook the lentils in cold water in a saucepan. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to low and cook for 25-30 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and lentils are tender.
  3. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, then cook, stirring, for 3-4 minutes until softened. Add the ginger, turmeric, thyme, broth and roasted carrot, then cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes.
  4. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth or to desired consistency. Stir the lentils through the soup and cook over medium heat for 2 minutes or until warmed through.
  5. Garnish the soup with extra thyme sprigs and serve with warm homemade bread.

What a lovely little green pot!
Cannot stand ginger, but I adore lentils and carrots, especially red lentils, that is something I always have in stock.

Lola Martínez 12/12/22 23:03

Es un buen entrante, calentito y sabroso, aunque para mí sería plato único y seguramente tomaría doble ración.

Brian 13/12/22 00:18

That sure does look good and would be delicious on a cold winter night.

A perfect and delicious soup in these cold days. Thank you, Angie!

This soup sounds wonderful. Love how you've ramped up the flavours by roasting the carrots and adding fennel seeds. And what a lovely idea to stir the lentil through the soup rather than blending with it. Fab recipe as ever.

I'm not sure that I would be too bothered about this soup being gluten and dairy free, it simply looks and sounds thick, creamy and delicious, which is just how I like my soup to be!

I'm afraid I would have to buy some of the bad for me, everything added, crusty bread, then cover it in lashings of real butter, just to soak up those delicious flavours.

I am not a glutton for dairy having said all that, as the only time I would ever dream of having butter is with fresh crusty bread, never on sandwich bread! - I hope that lets me off the hook a little? :)

Eva Taylor 13/12/22 22:20

There is something so Irresistibly creamy about lentils, I just love using them as a thickener in soups and sauces and they fill out the dish too! Your carrots add a lovely colour to this tasty festive meal.

Muriel 13/12/22 23:02
