Carrot Ginger soup

CARROT GINGER SOUP

Carrot ginger soup is the simplest nourishing food with loads of beta carotene from this thin tuber vegetable. All you need are carrots, onion, garlic ,ginger and Greek yogurt. I always wanted to have some nuts in my plain soups ……so I’ve added roasted silvered almonds. If you wish then instead of almonds, pine nuts can be added. Total cooking time including prep is just 30 minutes. So give it a try .It works well on a fasting day…..easy and filling.
