QUICK TIP: Carrots are a wonderful vegetable to sweeten and thicken pureed soups. I’ve used them in a variety of recipes including my creamy carrot tomato soup and creamy rutabaga carrot soup.
GINGER: Don’t skip the fresh ginger in this soup. It adds the perfect “zing” that this soup needs. Just a hint of hit will go a long way, but if you love ginger you can always add more!
TURMERIC: Ground turmeric is what will make this soup a delicious golden hue. Turmeric is a wonderful warming spice that has been used for thousands of years in India. It’s the perfect spice to add to soups during the cold wintery months. Turmeric has many health benefits and contains a compound called curcumin which is known to have anti-inflammatory properties, a strong antioxidant and may help to build a strong immune system,.
COCONUT MILK: To add more creaminess, one can of coconut milk is used. This makes the soup dairy-free. However, you could also use about 1 ½ cups of heavy cream in replacement.
