Carrot, Ginger, Pear Soup by Mind Body Green


This soup is by Isabella Wentz who has written books such as Hasmimotos Food Pharmacology. Her amazing soup blends carrot, ginger, and pear to be an ultra-gut-healing and immune-boosting meal. While maybe not a super-obvious ingredient in soup, pear makes a great addition as it's high in fiber, which helps detoxify the digestive system and maintain healthy gut bacteria.

Carrot, Ginger, Pear Soup

Serves 4


  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 4 medium carrots, chopped
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 pear (peeled if not organic), diced
  • 4 cups bone broth
  • 1 (1-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • Sea salt or pink Himalayan sea salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste (if tolerated)
  • Coconut milk, for garnish


  1. Heat the oil in a soup pot on medium. Add the carrots and onions and cook until onions are translucent, about 10 minutes.
  2. Add the pear and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the bone broth and bring to a boil; reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until carrots are tender.
  4. Add the grated ginger and blend in a blender in batches (when blending hot liquids, make sure the top of the blender is vented to let the steam escape) or with an immersion blender.
  5. Return to the pot (if using a blender); season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Serve warm with a dollop of coconut milk (optional).
