I love carrots. They're powerful health-promoting foods and blend well with both sweet and savory flavors.
Loaded up with beta-carotene and an army of other antioxidants and fiber carrots fight free radicals to cleanse the liver and colon. These orange avengers are also rich in vitamin K, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus to build the blood, regulate cholesterol, and support our heart, bones, and nerves.
But, here's what's really awesome: Unlike many other antioxidant-rich foods, the beta-carotene in carrots is heat stable, and light cooking in soups makes it more bioavailable. And, when you pair carrots with healthy fats like those found in coconut milk their carotenoids go craaaaazzzzy.
This creamy spiced carrot soup is an antioxidant ace, it's super easy, and has a mindblowing depth of flavor. What's not to love?
Don't miss making this soup. It's incredible.
