Hi friend! I hope you’re having a wonderful week! I bet you’re not even a little bit surprised that I’m sharing another soup recipe with you given my deep and abiding love for all things soupy and delicious.
As I mentioned last week in my Spicy Red Pepper & Carrot Soup Recipe, I’ve had an abundance of delicious, organic carrots come into my life and so I’ve been busy turning them into delicious recipes that I can batch cook and save for days when I just don’t feel like cooking.
If you knew me as a child, you would probably be shocked that I’ve become the veggie lover that I have, considering I used to hide my carrots and broccoli in the giant fern in our kitchen when my mom wasn’t looking. Ever since it moved down to the sunroom and I stopped feeding it, it’s been looking a little haggard. Sorry friend! These veggies are now for me.
I’ve packed this soup full of immune boosting, delicious, and warming veggies like garlic, jalapeno, and ginger so that you can make a tasty side dish that will help you fight off all the colds and flus of the winter season.
This soup freezes really well and can easily be made into a bigger batch, though this one is pretty large to start with! Enjoy 😀
