Since it was grey and chilly outside, I spent the weekend making soup. I made a Christmas lima bean soup with celery & kale on Saturday and a cumin-spiked carrot soup today. The bean soup is complex, partnering well with a sprinkling of goat cheese. But I like the simplicity of the carrot soup. It would be great with a hunk of rustic bread or ladled over quinoa.
Soups and mineral broths are a great way to get more vitamins, phytonutrients and booster foods into the diet. They are also easy to digest. Since it's flu and cold season, these vegetable rich soups are a great way to keep your immune system strong. They also warm you up on a chilly fall day.
