In a large pot, add the remaining olive oil and fry the onion, garlic and ginger until translucent. Add the roasted carrots and stock and allow the mixture to boil. Reduce the heat and cook for another 5 minutes.
Using an immersion blender, mix everything until smooth. Alternatively, you can use a regular blender and do it in batches or even a food processor.

Stir through a cup of heavy cream or coconut milk once the soup is blended and heat through before serving. Serve with crusty bread.
