Beta Carotene Rich Soup

Carotene Rich Soup

How do we ward off colds and flu and keep the immune system strong during the cooler months? We only have to turn to nature to give us the answer – using seasonal produce will provide all the essential vitamins and minerals needed to keep us looking and feeling good on the inside and out.

At the moment, I am making ‘Beta Carotene Rich Soup’, one of my all time favourite ‘comfort foods’. Roasting carrots in olive oil actually provide more beta carotene, a potent antioxidant than raw carrots. Antioxidants are nature’s answer to ageing younger! Perfect for a light lunch or snack!

 

SERVES – 4


 

INGREDIENTS


  • 500g carrots, peeled and chopped into small chunks

  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and chopped into small chunks

  • 2 cups vegetable stock

  • 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice

  • 1 teaspoon curry powder

  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh ginger

  • Freshly ground black pepper and Himalayan sea salt to season

  • Organic Natural/Greek yoghurt or Coconut yoghurt and dill to garnish

METHOD


Preheat oven to 180C. Place carrot and sweet potato onto baking trays. Drizzle with olive oil and use fingers to rub through the vegetables. Season with Himalayan sea salt and black pepper. Roast vegetables for 30-40 minutes or until soft.

Place roasted vegetables in a blender and add all other ingredients. Puree until smooth (can also use a bamix).

Garnish with yoghurt and dill, if desired.

TIP: This Beta Carotene Rich Soup is quite thick in consistency. Add extra water if you like it a bit thinner.
