How long can you keep homemade carrot soup?
This recipe can last about 3-4 day in the fridge. However,
it’s also great frozen.
If you’re interested, just add your leftovers in an airtight container that’s appropriate for the freezer. I always place the container in the refrigerator to cool the dish before placing it in the freezer. This step is especially helpful if you use glass containers. I use mason jars a lot when freezing. Cooling the container allows the glass and the liquid to slowly adjust temperatures instead of such a rapid change that will break the glass.
How do you blend soup without a blender?
If you don’t have an immersion blender or a vitamix then use
a potato masher. You won’t get a smooth puree but it will help mash the
ingredients and combine the soup.

Tips for making the best Instant Pot Carrot Ginger Soup
- To make this recipe on the stove top, in a large Dutch oven or sauce pot over medium-low heat, sauté the onions until translucent. Stirring frequently for about 10 minutes. Next add the garlic, ginger and thyme. Cook for about 30 seconds. Add the carrots and about 2 cups of the stock. Increase the heat to medium-high and bring the mixture to a gentle boil. Reduce the heat to low then cover the pot and let it simmer for about 20 minutes or until the carrots are completely cooked through. Use an immersion blender or a blender (in batches) to puree the soup until smooth. Finally add the remaining 3 cups of stock and cook until the soup is completely heated through, about 10 minutes or so.
