Carrot, Ginger, Turmeric Soup

IMG_9967

This cozy soup makes me all warm and fuzzy on those rare crisp fall days that happen in LA. Carrots are the perfect healing food when you’re starting to feel under-the-weather and turmeric has an arsenal of health benefits including it’s anti-inflammatory properties. But most importantly, it’s delicious and all of my kids love it! I freeze it in ice cube trays to have on hand for my 8-month-old Annabel. If you’re fortunate enough to have fresh turmeric, use 2 tbsp instead of the ground, and add it at the end with the ginger. Top with roasted chickpeas if you’re into a mediterranean twist. Enjoy!

CARROT, GINGER, TURMERIC SOUP

2 lbs carrots
1/2 sweet onion
1/2 sweet potato
6 cups veggie broth
2 tablespoons chopped fresh ginger
1 to 2 teaspoons ground turmeric
s & fresh cracked black pepper
Greek Yogurt, Cilantro, dill, parsley or roasted chickpeas for garnish

Bring to a boil the onions, carrots, sweet potato, turmeric and a pinch of salt in the veggie stock. Reduce to a simmer for 20 minutes or until sweet potatoes and carrots are tender. Put into a blender with the ginger. Serve in soup plates with a heavy dollop of greek yogurt and garnish with herbs, salt and freshly cracked pepper.

    • Hi Kerry! Glad you are connected on Instagram and thank you for the kind words! I’m so much better with it. Regarding the flu mist, James is a paid spokesperson for it. So that brings about the question, is money the only reason he said yes to the job. The real answer is no. We have decided against many paid opportunities because we didn’t believe in them. And quite honestly, there are lots of vaccinations I’m not a fan of. Especially ones with mercury. The flu mist we truly believe is the better option if somebody has decided they are going to vaccinate. For myriad reasons many doctors prefer it. For me, it’s mainly 2 reasons: 1. it doesn’t have mercury. 2. if somebody is going to vaccinate their child, the mist is easy and less traumatic.

  2. Hi Kimberly,

    Congrats again on your newest addition!! I just wanted to say, wow. I am Turmeric & ginger’s biggest fan, so I cannot wait to try this recipe! Have you tried a Turmeric & Ginger Komucha brew? Check out aquavitea.com for more info! They have refill stations at local markets and you can fill growlers with a reusable container! I’ve instagrammed them several times on my site (@samantha_rei) if you’re curious. Be well!

    Best,
