Roasted Carrot Soup
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine the carrot pieces, the onion, garlic, and ginger. Drizzle with olive oil; toss to coat. Arrange vegetables in a single layer on a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Bake 50 to 60 minutes or until carrots are very tender. Cool slightly.Advertisement
Squeeze garlic cloves from their skins into a food processor or blender. Add roasted carrots, onion, and ginger; cover and process or blend with several on/off turns until the vegetables are chopped. Add almond milk, broth, and pepper. Cover and process or blend until smooth.
Transfer to a medium saucepan. Stir in the water. Cook and stir until heated through. If desired, garnish with shredded carrot and basil leaves.
