Carrot Turmeric Soup


Prep Notes

Heal from the inside with this soup. Turmeric awakens circulation and vitamin A-rich carrots set eyes shining. A bit of coconut milk and extra virgin olive oil gratify your palette, ginger and cayenne add a lively kick to boost metabolism, and a dash of black pepper helps unlock turmeric’s bioavailability. This one's an antioxidant powerhouse!
