Tis the season in Australia for warming soups. When it comes to soups, I need to look to cookbooks for inspiration. Once I have the basics down, then amending them to suit our diet or available foods is easy.

This recipe is from The Healthy Chef’s Carrot Soup with Ginger and Tumeric. The added ginger and tumeric add flavour to an otherwise simple soup while giving you the added health benefits found in ginger and tumeric. Packed with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, this soup is wonderful for boosting your immune system and aiding in digestion.
