A bowl full of Carrot-Ginger Soup not only offers color and fragrance but it's light and soothing as well. Save a few carrot leaves the garnish.

The rich orange color of carrots assures that you’re getting tons of the nutrient beta-carotene. Save a few carrot leaves for an unexpected garish.

 

How to Make It

Step 1

In large pot, simmer carrots and next 5 ingredients (through water), covered, until carrots are tender (20-25 minutes).

Step 2

Using an immersion blender (or a standard, blender working in batches), blend until smooth; add lemon juice. Divide among 4 bowls; garnish with crushed red pepper and carrot leaves. If desired, serve chilled.
