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!

1 yellow onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 large bunch carrots, cut into 2" chunks (about 2 lbs)

1 tbsp freshly grated turmeric or 1 tsp ground
1 tbsp fresh ginger or 1 tsp ground
1 quart water + 2 cups as needed
