GINGER IS MY GO-TO FOR ALL THE HEALTHY BENEFITS
It’s not just about the spicy taste – it helps with everything from digestion to detoxification. And in our house, we drink it, eat it and even just chew on it. I know, sounds crazy but it’s that good for you.
THIS CREAMY GINGER CARROT SOUP IS DELISH!
I know I’ve been raving about ginger. But carrots deserve some love too. Especially because they tend to get a bad rep for being higher on the glycemic index. But the carotenoids that give carrots their bright orange color, actually help slow the aging process – naturally.
* 1 tbsp. of coconut oil
* 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
* 1 clove of garlic, minced
* 2 tbsp. of fresh ginger, chopped
* 1 lb. of carrots, peeled + chopped
* 32 oz. of vegetable stock
* 1-14 oz. can of coconut cream or coconut milk
* 1/2 tsp. of salt
HOW TO MAKE IT:
Heat a large skillet to medium high heat, melting the coconut oil.
Add the onion, garlic and ginger to the skillet and cook until you can smell all the goodness – about 5 minutes or until the onion is almost clear. Then add the carrots and veggie stock and bring it to a boil
Reduce the heat to a simmer. Then cook until the carrots are soft – about 25 minutes. Then slowly stir in the coconut milk.
Using an immersion blender, blend the soup until smooth.. Add salt to taste – enjoy!
If soup is not your thing, this recipe makes a delicious creamy ginger carrot mash. Just reduce the veggie stock to 4 ounces, reduce the coconut milk to a drizzle and mash the carrot combination instead of blending.
Remember, ginger’s an anti-inflammatory must-have you don’t want to miss out on. Especially during cold and flu season.
Ginger and turmeric go hand-in-hand. Try this turmeric drink recipe (aka golden milk).
