Carrot Ginger Soup

Not that you have to wait till fall to enjoy this scrumptous soup but nothing makes me happier than a warm bowl of homemade soup on a brisk October day. However, when it comes to soups you can never be too careful, the canned stuff can come with an extra helping of sodium and preservatives, yuck! So here’s an awesome and quick recipe for a soul warming carrot ginger squash soup I found in Health magazine! It’s veggie and vegan friendly but mainly just a great healthy choice. You can also make a large batch and keep it in the fridge for a quick healthy afternoon snack .

Carrot Ginger Squash Soup

Saute 1/2 cup chopped onions, 1 tbsp fresh ginger and 1 clove minced garlic in 1 tsp olive oil for 3 minutes in medium pot. Add 1 1/2 cup low sodium vegetable broth, 1 cup frozen butternut squash cubes and 1 cup of carrot slices. Bring to a boil, and simmer for 5 minutes. With a hand blender, puree until smooth; if desired add broth for thinner texture. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
