Carrot Ginger Soup

11 Jan

As the cold weather approaches it is time

 to get more use out of my Vitamix and bring on the soups!!!!

Carrot Ginger soup is one of my favorites!!!

Loading up on vitamins & antioxidants and this soup

is full of them both !!!

Most of the benefits of carrots can be attributed to their beta carotene and fiber content. This root vegetable is also a good source of antioxidant agents. Furthermore, carrots are rich in vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, vitamin B8, pantothenic acid, folate,

 potassium, iron, copper, and manganese.

Too many benefits of ginger to list ….

 Ginger is one of the Healthiest foods …

mainly I ‘m consuming it for

 Flu/cold prevention & Anti-Inflammatory Effects.

I used this recipe from THE CHEW-Clinton Kelly-It is sooo yummy!!!!

I had to share !!!!

Ingredients

  • 1 onion (roughly chopped)
  • 2 cloves garlic (smashed)
  • 1 2 ” piece ginger (peeled, roughly chopped)
  • 6 carrots (peeled, roughly chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 15 ounce can coconut milk
  • 2 cups chicken stock/broth (cold or room temperature)
  • 1 lime (cut into wedges)
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro (chopped)
Directions
  • In a large saucepan over medium high heat, add olive oil.
  • Add onion, sauté until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  • Add garlic, ginger and carrots, sauté 2 more minutes.
  • Transfer mixture to the container of a Vitamix. Add cumin, red pepper flakes, honey, coconut milk, stock, salt and pepper.
  • Starting on the lowest setting and gradually increasing, blend for 6 minutes or until steam escapes through the lid.

red pepper flakes & a squeeze of lime juice

 finishes this soup off !!!
