Kitchen staples make up this easy soup.

Ingredients

Soup:
2 tbsp coconut oil
1″ piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped

1 lb carrots, peeled and chopped
4 cups vegetable broth

Salt and pepper

Drizzle:
1/4 cup tahini
Juice of 1/2 lemon

Directions

Step 1: Melt coconut oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat.

Step 2: Add ginger and garlic; sauté for 1 minute. Add carrots and continue to sauté for 4-5 minutes or until slightly softened. Add vegetable broth. Increase heat to bring the soup to a boil. Once it is boiling, lower the heat and simmer until the vegetables are tender, 20-25 minutes.

Step 3: Purée the soup with an immersion blender or in a regular blender. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 4: For the Drizzle, combine all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to blend. Season with salt and pepper.
