A Spring Soup: Carrot Ginger

Nothing like a fresh, nutrient-dense and vibrant soup to satiate you on a mild, Spring night than this dish... Carrots are a detoxifying veggie- full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that are excellent for the skin, eyes, bones, teeth, nails, hair, liver and stomach. The large amounts of Beta Carotene (Vitamin A) in carrots help to protect vision as well as ward off cardiovascular disease and cancer. The best thing about carrots is that they're a sweet root veggie, making them an excellent ingredient to incorporate in meals to help diminish your sweet tooth and lessen that craving for something sugary post-meal. Try this refreshing but hearty-enough soup: Carrot Ginger Soup 4 Carrots, cut in half 1/2 inch piece of Ginger 1/3 Onion or 1/2 Small Shallot 2 Garlic cloves 1 tablespoon Miso paste 1 teaspoon Sea Salt 1 tablespoon Coconut Oil
