Loaded with minerals, fiber and nourishing phytonutrients, soups are much more than comfort food. I don’t like to wait for soup season; instead I treat myself to a healing bowl of soup anytime my body needs a restart and some pampering.


Healing Carrot Soup with Turmeric and Ginger


Seasonal colds, sore throats, weight-loss difficulties, poor circulation, immune support, detoxification–the healing powers of soups are something that both scientists and our grandmothers can agree on. Soups are definitely nutritious, but what really gives them healing powers?

First, there’s the fact that soups preserve most of the nourishing nutrients in the vegetables, making them available for our body to digest. All the energy and therapeutic effects of fresh nutrients is transferred to the liquid and absorbed easily by our body. The second–and this is where you can work your magic–is improving the nutritional powers of your soup with healing ingredients. Turmeric, ginger, coconut oil, seaweed, shiitake, aromatic herbs such as sage, mint or basil–they all boost the healing powers of soup and help your body to restore a healthy balance.


Healing Carrot Soup with Turmeric and Ginger

Slowly simmered vegetables over low heat results into a mineral-rich soup, while lightly roasting or steaming the vegetables preserves their antioxidants, anti-inflammatory compounds and most of their vitamins. I made my soup with lightly roasted carrot and garlic for an intense flavor and spiced it up with turmeric and ginger.

Turmeric is a strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant spice, stimulating the immune system and circulation. Ginger soothes the intestines and supports healthy digestion. A drizzle of virgin coconut oil improves the absorption of the high concentrations of beta-carotene from the carrots and the curcuma antioxidants in turmeric. I used turmeric and ginger to create a healing concoction, one to nurture my digestive system and infuse my body with warming energy.
