Gingery carrot soup - easy soup recipes

gingery carrot soup It has been raining in Singapore almost everyday. Its dark and dull everywhere. My son and I were down with the cold virus last week. So the only thing which came to our rescue in those boring days was a hot bowl of soup. Yes, I make soup almost everyday now and we find it really soothing for our sore throats. And as it healthy ,so I am glad if my son has atleast a few spoons of the soup.
This carrot soup was really delicious with lots of ginger and pepper for the taste I craved for. I also added some pasta shells to make it more filling.

Ingredients-
Carrots- 2 big chopped
Onion-1 chopped
Ginger- 1" chopped
garlic- 2cloves
Whole pepper- 1tsp
Vegetable stock cubes- 1
Potato- 2-3 small pieces/cubes/chopped
pasta shells- 1/2 cup boiled
Milk- 1cup
Butter- 1tsp
Salt to taste

Method-
Heat butter in pan. Add the ginger garlic and whole pepper and then the carrots and potatoes. Saute for sometime. Add a cup of water. Cover with lid and allow it to cook till the carrots are very tender and the water is completely drained. Cool and grind them to a very fine paste.
Pour the paste in the pan. Add the vegetable stock and salt and 2 cups of water and milk and the pasta shells. Allow it to boil.
Serve warm.
I am sending this soup to Neha who is hosting Swc- soups the event originally started by Lakshmi.
