The spice flavour of ginger and just a hint of turmeric add some zing to this savory-sweet soup, they both have an amazing anti inflamatory and detox properties.
Carrots, apples, and zucchini might not seem like an common combination, but it really works here: all three of them have a slightly different combination of sweet and hearty, and all together they make a very tasty soup. Make it with vegetable stock for your vegan friends, or whip up a big batch of homemade bone stock for an even more velvety taste.
These kinds of sweet gingery soups almost get better as leftovers, because the flavors develop a little in the fridge and get even more intense the next day. Why not make a double batch and see for yourself?
You can have soup as an easy lunch (cook it ready the night before) as a side dish or a starter, beautiful and easy.
8 carrots, peeled and roughly chopped;
2 small courgettes, peeled and roughly chopped;
