Carrot Ginger Soup

Another Winter Warmer!!

“Soup is to the meal, what the hostess’s smile of welcome is to the party.
A prelude to the goodness to come.” quoted by
Louis P. De Gouy,

With plenty of carrots floating in the fridge at any given time why don’t you try this interesting soup?
This great combo of carrots and fresh ginger heightens the flavour of the soup!!
Needless to say the goodness of carrots cannot be ignored as they are rich in fibre and antioxidants – They can be eaten raw as in salads, steamed boiled or cooked as in soups and various dishes!
Fresh ginger is generally used for cooking purposes and Dried ginger is widely used in the preparation of medicines.
Ginger is highly regarded as an appetiser and a digestive agent in addition to its taste and flavour –
A drink of mashed ginger with caramelised sugar, cumin seeds and water helps to eliminate coughs, colds, asthma and stomach aliments.
