Fall has arrived and now is the time to infuse the body with warming spices like turmeric, ginger and cumin – and what better way to do it than with this turmeric-spiced carrot soup. Full of beneficial anti-inflammatories and healing properties that’ll help keep colds and other bacterial and viral infections at bay.

What I like most about this soup is that it is a) raw; b) creamy; and c) low-fat. It also has the perfect blend of spices to create a rich aroma and taste. It is a culmination of sweet, spicy and warming, all of which result in an incredibly satisfied, well-rounded feeling.

You should use a high-speed blender like a Vitamix or Blendtec for this recipe to get a really creamy consistency. Another bonus of using high-speed blenders means that you can slightly warm your soups if you leave them blending for over 1-2 minutes, without ever cooking them or destroying the beneficial enzymes. How awesome is that!?

Ingredients:

– 3 cups chopped carrots
– 1 1/2 cups low-fat coconut milk
– 1 inch fresh turmeric root (1 tsp. powdered)
– 1 inch fresh ginger root (1 tsp. powdered)
– 1 tbsp. finely chopped onion
– 1/2 tsp. cumin
– 1 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley for garnish

Method:

Add all of the above ingredients (except parsley) to a high-speed blender like a Vitamix or Blendtec. Blend on high until it starts to warm slightly, about 2-3 minutes. Serve in a bowl and top with parsley. Enjoy!
