Curried Carrot Ginger Soup

Carrots are a staple in my kitchen.

I use them in almost everything, plus I like to snack on them.

Not the fake baby carrots that have all been shaved clean and cut down to size, but real carrots. The kind Bugs Bunny used to chew on.

“What’s up, Doc?”

Carrots are filled with beta carotene that the body converts to Vitamin A, plus they have a naturally sweet flavor that makes them totally delicious.

And, when you combine them with the ingredients I used in the recipe below, get your body ready for powerhouse nutrition!

As if the onion, ginger, and curry powder weren’t enough, I also used a homemade chicken stock that I prepared with a few pieces of astragalus root to boost natural immunity. If you are vegetarian, you can use veggie stock instead of chicken stock.

All of that combined with my simple staple carrots created this creamy health-supportive soup.

Oh, and I finished it with a drizzle of cilantro oil.

Try it… you’ll like it, Doc.
