Gingered Carrot Soup
This soup is mild yet satisfying, sweet but not overly so and the ginger can naturally help with nausea.
Makes 4 servings
1 lb carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
2-3 cups vegetable or chicken stock
1 Tbsp grated ginger
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground turmeric
Salt to taste
1 Tbsp organic yogurt or sour cream (optional)
In a heavy pot with tight-fitting lid, steam the carrots in 1 cup of the stock for about 12 minutes or until the carrots are tender. Add the ginger, coriander and turmeric and, using a food processor or an immersion blender, purée the carrots until velvety smooth, adding additional stock as needed to reach a thick, soupy consistency. Adjust seasoning to your liking and garnish with a dollop of yogurt or sour cream.
