This is my famous carrot ginger soup recipe. Believe it or not, I created this recipe over a year ago when throwing an Orange is the New Black viewing party. As you can see from the pictures, the soup went great with the theme. I originally topped it with caviar to add an element with black, but it is actually the perfect addition.The caviar adds a great contrasting texture to the soup and adds just the perfect amount of salt. It does not have to be fancy caviar. I found caviar at world market and this time around I actually found the caviar at Ross Dress for Less for only three dollars!

Every occasion when I make this soup, it is always the hit of the evening.

I served this as an appetizer in tall shot glasses, but I’ve also served it in dinner bowls, decorative crystal bowls, and even small mugs. I hope you love it as much as I do. You can also substitute the creme fraiche for sour cream and also don’t be afraid of the caviar, trust me it works! Best of all this soup is very healthy and packed full of nutrients. I normally am not a huge fan of carrots, but with this soup, you will never feel like you’re eating them. I promise even your kids will love it.

I really feel like I got it down quickly and this is just my second attempt editing my own video. Let me know how you like it! You can find the software I used to make this video at
