Light & Refreshing - Perfect for Spring!

Current Status: Eagerly watching the snow melt outside of my kitchen window. While listening to our eldest of three dogs Willis the Pug bark at the birds outside, lol. I don’t know why but he’s always disliked birds. I’ve seen him snore through terrible storms, parties that have run into the morning hours, construction during the renovations to our home and crying babies and toddlers but all you have to do is crack the window one inch and have a bird somewhere in the distant and he’s suddenly annoyed. He’s 12 this year so we’ll let him have it 😉

This change in weather has me inspired in the kitchen today though! And aside from being exhausted by the recent time change (like how does one hour make such a difference?) I’m feeling energy to cook and create all the light and easy meals so I can spend more time outside soaking up that sunshine I’ve been missing over this long ass winter!

Especially having a toddler, between the cold snaps and the hanging out in the basement while our home Renos were being completed, I think we’re all ready to get outside and stretch our legs in the fresh air. I also bought a running wheel for our chariot today, eek! Running….cardio in general has never been my strong suit but I’m determined to give it my best this year and try to learn to love it. I mean we don’t get better at things be avoiding them right? So if you see a lady passed out next to her chariot somewhere in Fishcreek Park…call me a cab please.

If you have those exciting feels for Spring too, I highly suggest you try making this soup. It’s so light and refreshing. Creamy from the tahini and hints of the good umami flavour from the miso, and so easy to whip up for lunch or dinner. I thoroughly enjoyed a bowl after I made it for lunch today, but it would be perfect along side you fav sammie or salad too. Hope the sun is shining whoever you are today, maybe you hear a pug barking in the distance?

Miso Tahini Carrot Soup – 6 Ingredients!

Light and Refreshing, this soup is perfect for Spring! Only 6 ingredients!

  • Author: Tanya Bates


  • 2 Lbs (Roughly 8 Large Carrots) Peeled and Chopped into Large Pieces
  • 1 Medium Yellow Onion Chopped into Large Pieces
  • 4-6 Cloves of Garlic – Minced
  • 1 Inch Piece of Fresh Ginger – Minced
  • 1 Tbsp of Avocado or Coconut Oil (I used Avocado Oil)
  • 1 Tsp of Sea Salt
  • 3 Tbsp of Shiro Miso Paste
  • 2 Tbsp of Tahini
  • 3 Cups of Water + 2 Cups Reserved



  1. In a large pot, add oil and heat to medium heat, adding in garlic, onion and ginger
  2. Cook until onion are translucent and garlic and ginger are fragrant
  3. Add in carrots and salt, and stir to coat
  4. Add water and reduce heat and allow to simmer for approx. 30 minutes or until carrots are fully cooked and tender
  5. In a high powered blender (I use a Vitamix – Soup setting) add miso, tahini and mixture from pot and blend until smooth and fully pureed. Adding in water as needed. The soup should be thick but not paste like. I ended up using another 2 cups of water
  6. Removed and serve immediately with topping if you wish, I used some toasted sesame seeds
