Detoxifying Carrot Ginger Soup

Warm, vibrant and full of texture, this carrot ginger soup is bursting with taste and nutrients. Whether taken as a main course or an appetizer, this is a soup that will satisfy both your taste buds and soul. In my opinion, it’s best served with a touch of cream and chopped chives.




This is the best carrot soup I have ever had! Garnish with chopped chives and cream for a perfectly balanced soup.
