Words cannot describe how nourishing and flavoursome this soup is! This soup is jam-packed with benefits for the body, especially as the cold damp winter nights are creeping in! Carrots provide a range of health benefits, from improving blood pressure to protecting eye health. Cooked carrots have a higher level of beta-carotene and phenolic acid than raw carrots. Ginger contains several medicinal compounds… It is great for relieving stomach complaints, nausea and calming a sore throat. Turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant.
Now that is my kind of medicine!!!
This soup makes for the perfect winter-warmer.
