Your help to sustainable health and redesigning your body

Healthy food 1

In my post “Ease into a healthier 2013” I gave a few examples of ways to create a healthier life for your self. One of the examples was using spices to boost your metabolism. Today I will show you a super easy soup which is both nutritional and has two of the spices mentioned.

My “Nu fuss carrot soup” (time to cook: about 20 minutes)

Ingredients:

Carrots 1 kg

Potatoes 4 medium large

Chili, 1 whole.

Stock 1 liter (Chicken, fish or vegetable depending on what you prefere. I use chicken stock.)

Ginger, a piece about the size of a lime. This will give a quite potent taste of the ginger. Adjust according to taste.

Lime, juice from 1-1 1/2

1 Peel and chop the carrots and the potatoes.

2 Chop the chili and the ginger

3 Pop it all in a big pot with the stock. Bring to a boil and the boil it until all the vegetables are soft.

4 Mix the it to a soup.

5 Add the juice from the lime.

Done!

If the soup is too thick, add some boiled water.

    I have GOT to get a stick blender! (maybe two cause I make soap) I don’t even have a blender right now!

    I think less ginger for me but this sounds, and looks, so Yumm!

    great recipe – blogging tip: keep all your pictures the same size – you can also place the photos between the steps 🙂

    Oh that sounds scrumptious! I’ll Pocket this until cooler weather (it’s a stinker down here in Australia today). I am also very blessed to have a thermomix which will love this recipe – all the spices are my favourites so I’ll relish this!
