Simple Carrot Ginger Soup

Simple Carrot Ginger Soup

Sometimes, we just want a big dose of veggies and anti-inflammatory ginger, this is your soup.

I love carrots. I could eat them all day long – they are rich in fibre, beta carotene, potassium and antioxidants, as well as Vitamin A. This soup will take five minutes to throw together for a nourishing lunch or snack .
