Carrot Ginger Soup

Soup in the summer heat is always questionable. But this soup is different that your typical soup. This creamy and sweet carrot ginger soup is perfect for a hot summer day. The carrots are sweet, and the ginger adds a delicious spicy heat to the soup. This can be made with regular dairy milk, or soy milk to make it lactose free and vegan. It can be served with a dollop of cream, sour cream or yogurt place in the bottom of the bowl and then the chilled soup poured over the top. If the soup is served hot, it can be garnished with a little cream on the top of each bowl.
