Vegan Carrot and Ginger Soup

Every time I open up my refrigerator door, I see this huge bag of carrots. The first thing my mind goes to, is hmm… I probably need to juice those. Then my next thought is, I will have to take out my juicer, but I really don’t feel like taking out my juicer and putting it together. My final thought, SOUP! It will require one pot and a blender. I think I can do this and you can too. Some days just need to be as simple as possible. This soup is loaded with ingredients that are anti inflammatory, rich in vitamin C and packed with flavor. It is the perfect remedy on cold days. I hope you will cuddle up on the sofa with your favorite blanket and a good movie and this soup, take a deep breath and enjoy some time to pause from the hustle and bustle of life.
