Print Recipe
Serves: 2 Cooking Time: 40 min


  • 1 tbsp vegan/plant based butter
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 2 whole garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 190g carrots, chopped
  • 115 g peeled turnip, chopped
  • 15 g fresh ginger knob
  • zest from 1 orange
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • salt and pepper
  • fried sage leaves ( optional)
  • 2 tbsp tahini ( optional)



Take a medium size pot and heat the butter. Add the shallots then garlic to sauté them until they are translucent but not browned. Turn down the heat and de-glaze with white vinegar. Add the ginger knob, carrots, turnips and stir to cook for about 2 minutes.


Add the vegetable broth, salt and pepper, and the orange zest before covering with a lid and letting it simmer for 30 minutes.


Transfer the ingredients to a food processor or blender and blitz a few times for a chunky soup, and let it rev for a smooth one.


Top with fried sage leaves and a spoon of tahini.


New to fried sage? You'll love it! You can make a good amount and it will store at room temperature for about 3 days. To make it take the fresh sage leaves off the stem, and slowly drop into a small non stick pan that has been heated with at least 2 mm of oil. Let the sage leaves crisp up and take out before they look down. Transfer to a clean paper towel to allow the excess oil to soak off and finish the crisping of the sage.

Baby it’s cold outside. What do you want to keep you toasty and healthy? Besides some egg nog and being snuggled with your significant other, soup. Its the only thing that comes to mind when your nose is red, your fingers may or may not be working tomorrow, and you are about to throw yourself into that nice fire you started and mimic a roast chicken.

This soup my friends is your savior. The base is a vitamin powerhouse bed of carrots that is blended with ginger, garlic, shallots, and broth. If your not doing a plant based or vegan diet you can replace the veggie broth with bone broth to amp it up on the nutrition end. You can choose, whether to let the stew cook down and then blend it for a smooth and sexy bite or let it be rough like a village stew and cook until almost tender before blitzing the soup. Each bite will tantalize your palate and clear your sinuses, but since its also toasty and has to be a little gourmet, top it off with super chic and delicious fried sage and tahini for that next level shit.
