Hearty Carrot Ginger Soup

October 24, 2015

carrot ginger soupAuthor: Lily Mazzarella
The brilliant golden-orange color and outrageous aroma of this soup tell you it’s got to be good for you. Indeed, this updated classic is a sure-fire hit for your immune system. Carrots contain abundant beta-carotene, which your body converts to immune enhancing vitamin A, while ginger improves circulation, warms the digestive tract, and supports the body in fighting the common cold.

Ingredients

1 tbs coconut oil
1 large leek, white and light green parts only, cleaned, trimmed, and thinly sliced
1 medium onion (or 2 medium shallots)
1 small zucchini, roughly chopped
5 large carrots, peeled and chopped
1⁄2 chopped apple — crisp tart varietal (optional)
1 tbs minced/grated fresh ginger
1 tsp ground turmeric
1⁄4 tsp ground cardamom
1⁄4 tsp ground cinnamon
4 cups broth
1⁄2 cup full-fat coconut milk
Freshly ground black pepper
Pea Protein or Grass-fed Collagen

Preparation

Melt the coconut oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the leeks, along with a generous pinch of salt, and sauté until translucent, about 5 minutes. Toss in the carrot, apple, ginger, and cardamom, and saute until fragrant. Pour in the broth and bring to a boil over high heat. Turn down the heat to low. Cover and simmer until the carrots are easily pierced with a fork, about 30 minutes. Mix in the coconut milk. Transfer the soup in batches to a blender and process until smooth. Alternatively, purée the soup directly in the pot with an immersion blender. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add 1 tbsp of grass-fed Collagen or pea protein to each serving of soup.

TIPS: If you don’t love the flavor of coconut milk, add 1 tbsp cashew butter to the soup before blending, or omit entirely.

Helps with sleep

I've been taking this in the evening before bed for about 6 months and it definitely helps me go to sleep more quickly, and also sleep more soundly through the night.
Digestible and effective.

The best B Vitamin I've tried

I'm very happy with this vitamin. Easily digestible, and I can feel the difference in energy levels when I'm taking this regularly.

I love this

I take this most mornings for both a mood and energy boost. I also take it if I’m feeling sluggish and want to enhance mental clarity. I highly recommend this blend.

Great

Received the gift certificate for my birthday from my daughter-in-law. I Had shopped in Farmacopia one year ago. Wanted to shop again. Due to Covid it’s hard to do. Searching for products online was easy. Purchasing items online was easy. Calling the store to make sure my order was ready was easy. Picking up my purchase at the store was easy. I will shop Farmacopia again. Looking forward to trying all the products I purchased.

Definitely helps

I’m not celiac but I am lactose & gluten intolerant. I avoid eating gluten always but sometimes I’m tempted by cheese. I recently ate some goat feta and I had no problems. I didn’t over unduly. Usually any amount of dairy causes me stomach pains and so much bloating. I don’t make a habit of taking this in a regular basis but it’s also come in very handy when I’ve gone out to eat or over to a friends (pre covid) and cheese has bean sprinkled on top and it’s always hard to remove it all.
