No matter the time of year, it is always important to have a go-to immunity-building and detoxifying soup that fills you up without overtaxing your digestive system. When your digestive tract is given a break, your body can focus on other things, such as clearing skin, strengthening the liver, and burning fat.
Ginger, as you may already know, is a panacea of sorts. It has anti-inflammatory effects and helps to protect against cancer. Turmeric’s benefits are just as potent. It offers a slew of benefits, including boosting brain health, reducing stress, preventing cancer, balancing blood sugar levels, and relieving pain. Meanwhile, cayenne works to boost circulation and garlic asserts it antimicrobial, antibacterial, and antiviral dominance. Cinnamon offers a warming sensation and a unique flavor.
With a carrot base, this detox soup is creamy, thick, and filling, only without the creams, butters, or flour. It’s vegan, gluten-free, and satisfying to even the most skeptical of taste buds. Enjoy!
