CARROT WITH GINGER AND TURMERIC SOUP RECIPE

CARROT WITH GINGER AND TURMERIC SOUP
This immune-boosting Ginger and Turmeric Carrot Soup is simple and easy to make, creamy, satisfying, nourishing and flavorful. Vegan, gluten-free and low calorie.

To complement the sweetness of the carrot I love to add heat, you could easily do that with chilies but I prefer ginger in this case. It has a lovely heat to it and is quite peppery if used in larger amounts. I use ginger a lot during winter in all sorts of things ranging from teas and cookies to savory dishes. I think it is one of the most underrated ingredients. In a way, it is understandable since it doesn’t look very spectacular but it comes with so many benefits that you should take advantage off, especially during winter. Gingerol, the bioactive substance in fresh ginger can help with lowering the risk of infections. It offers great taste and helps you fight colds when it’s wet and windy outside – so this carrot soup with ginger and turmeric is a must cook for wintertime.
