Happy Monday! Remember how on Friday I explained that I was so busy I didn’t even have time to cut and past things from the internet into a blog post? Well, then it probably comes as no surprise to you that on Saturday I got hit with what felt like the beginnings of a very bad cold. I felt tired the whole day, I was sniffling, and my throat was scratchy.
Fortunately, I’ve gotten pretty good at attacking symptoms before they get too comfortable. My go-to get-better kit includes: grapefruit smoothies, ginger (in anything i can put it in), turmeric (same), lemon, oil of oregano extract, and lots of tea and water.
In an effort to combine several of those in one meal, I made a variation of my carrot soup. It’s a super simple soup and you can make it with a lot of variations.
Carrot Ginger Turmeric Soup
3 large carrots, chopped
1 in. (or more) fresh ginger root
1 in. (or more) fresh turmeric root
2 c water (you may want more or less depending on how thick you like your soup)
juice from half lemon
Heat the carrots, ginger, turmeric, and water in a pot at medium heat until it comes to a boil. Pour ingredients into a high speed blender. Blend until smooth.
Pour in a bowl, squeeze the lemon on top, add a dollop of tahini, and a pinch of salt and cayenne pepper. Also, maybe some kale.
This had me feeling better right away. And it was delicious!
