Carrot Ginger Soup
My mother was always cooking healthy, filling meals that never left you feeling heavy. Always flavorful, my mother’s recipes were never boring. This is one of those recipes. This blended carrot ginger soup is perfect for cooler nights with a crusty bread but that’s the obvious choice. To switch it up, this soup is also delicious served cold for lunch. Make sure to save the recipe for summer meals on the terrace. I always double this recipe.
