Ingredients

4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth or water, 1 yellow onion (diced), 3 cloves garlic (crushed), 1 Tbs freshly grated ginger, 1/2 tsp ground turmeric, 1 pound carrots (coarsely chopped), 1 medium Yukon gold potato (peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks), 1 tsp lemon juice, 1 Tbs chopped fresh cilantro.

Directions

1. Heat 1/2 cup broth to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic, turmeric and ginger and cook until tender, about 6 mn, stirring occasionally.

Notes

The carrots in this unctuous soup will ground you and satisfy a sweet tooth, while the ginger will bring some warmth to your body. It is full of antioxidants, immune- building and anti-inflammatory properties to prepare your body for a colder weather.
