Caribbean Carrot-Ginger Soup
I developed this recipe while in the Dominican Republic. Living in a small, rural beach town, I had to be resourceful with ingredients that were available and affordable. Carrots grow like crazy there, so this was an easy, delicious recipe that I used to make for my friends during the rainy season. It's the first recipe I really ever developed myself, and I still love it. Garnish as desired with microgreens, chopped chives, toasted sliced almonds, or chia seeds.
You can use black pepper instead of white.
Canned coconut milk can be pretty chunky, so shake it vigorously before opening the can.
