Nothing says loving on a rainy day like a hot bowl of soup! This one is full of healthy veggies, completely gluten free and vegan and anti-inflammatory! It takes minutes to prep and I promise you will be wanting that seconds of this "guilt free" bowl!
Fresh organic veggies make a gorgous golden stock which is then thickened with cashew cream and seasoned with ginger.
Ginger is naturally anti-inflammatory and can be added to teas, juices and soups for its healing benefits as well as its lovely bright flavor!
In this soup I pair it with Carrot, Beets, Cauliflower, Yellow Onion, collard greens and Roasted Garlic.
When these flavors come together in the pot with a drizzle of coconut oil and a heaping spoonful of curry powder, the scent is absolutely magnificent! It is warm and cozy and full of rich flavor
Once the Cashew cream and carrot stock is added, the soup thickens up and becomes a hearty meal! I paired ours with a kale salad to make a balanced nutritious dinner! This will warm the hearts (and bellies ) of your whole family, and its also a winner to make for weekday lunches, individual mason jar portions are perfect to just grab and go!
