Carrot Ginger Soup Carrot Ginger Soup

Fresh ginger root can be found in almost every supermarket in America. Most is imported from Hawaii. The picture above shows two small pieces of unpeeled ginger and the amount of chopped ginger needed for this recipe. It has a thin fawn-colored skin and a pungent smell when cut, powdered ginger will not be an equal substitute in this recipe. I add orange at the end of this recipe to enhance flavors.
