Carrot and Ginger Soup

I like to cook with fresh Ginger. This pungent and spicy aromatic adds a special flavor and zest to soups, stir-fries, vegetables and fruits.

Fresh Ginger is available all year-round. Modern research revealed that ginger possesses numerous therapeutic properties.

Carrots are also available all year-round, the locally grown are in season in the summer and fall.

At my local Farmer Market, I am fortunate enough to be able to buy organic locally grown carrots during the winter. They are fresh and sweet.

Carrots are best know for their rich supply of antioxidant. These delicious root vegetables are a favorite in many dishes.
