This creamy roasted carrot and swede soup is so easy, healthy and comforting. It’s dairy-free and made without a stove or pot too! Perfect for anytime you feel like a cozy bowl of soup.


  • 500g carrots, unpeeled, cut into thick slices
  • 500g swede, unpeeled, cut into chunks
  • 1 large brown onion, quartered left skin on
  • 46 garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspon ground coriander
  • salt + pepper
  • 45 cups (1-1.25L) vegetable broth or water*
  • Coconut cream, to drizzle


  1. Preheat your oven to 200C/ 400F.
  2. Next, prepare the vegetables. Cut the carrots and swede into ½″ thick cubes and cut the onion into quarters.
  3. Place cubed carrots, swede, onions and unpeeled garlic cloves on a baking sheet and toss in olive oil, cumin, coriander, salt, and pepper. Transfer to the oven for 30-40 minutes, tossing halfway.
  4. Remove everything from the oven and squeeze the garlic out of their skins and discard the onion skins. Add the vegetable broth, roasted vegetables, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper to a high-speed blender (I use a vitamix). Blend for a couple minutes, until smooth.
  5. Adjust seasonings as desired and serve! I love to add a sprinkling of roasted pumpkin seeds, fresh coriander (cilantro) and a slice of toasted sourdough.


  • Add an extra cup of vegetable broth for a thinner consistency.
  • If you want a hotter soup, heat the vegetable broth over the stove top before blending. Alternatively use  warm kettle water if preferred.
  • Leftovers of this soup can be kept in an airtight container or jar in the fridge for 3-5 days. To keep for longer, soup can be frozen for up to 6 months.
  • To reheat, simply warm it up on the stovetop or in the microwave! Be sure to stir soup to evenly distribute the heat.
