If you enjoy a hearty soup, you’ll love this mouth-watering recipe.

Smooth and slightly sweet, this carrot and ginger soup is a wonderful comforting treat, even in summer.

It’s also a great immune booster with plenty of vitamin C and ginger. Ginger is known for its healing properties and is great for relieving motion sickness, loss of appetite, nausea and pain. 

For an extra health kick, add in coriander, which is a wonderful source of vitamin K and adds a fresh kick of flavour. 

This recipe also goes great with a slice of freshly-baked bread. You’ll find a recipe for that here.
