Carrot Ginger Soup (vegan)

This weather has been a constant yo-yo the past week or so. It’s fine. I get it. It’s spring. There is no “consistent” weather. That just doesn’t happen. No reason to get your panties in a bunch about it.

So with some cooler days ahead, I decided to make something to warm the soul.

The carrot and ginger combination is amazing. I’m not even sure the word “amazing” is enough to describe how amazing it really is!
