Hi Lovely Goddess,
Here is an easy to make and delicious soup that is packed with beta carotene, a powerful antioxidant. Vegetables with a deep orange color are a high source of this important nutrient.
Beta carotene is known for:
~ Reducing risk of heart disease
~ Strengthening the immune system
~ Reliving respiratory problems
~ Cancer prevention
~ Improving skin
~ Improving vision
In addition, the natural sweet taste of these wonderful vegetables is deeply satisfying and helps reduce cravings for sugar.
Saute in a little grass fed organic ghee or olive oil:
3 large cloves of garlic, chopped
1 inch piece of peeled turmeric root, chopped
4-5 large sage leaves, chopped
A few sprigs of thyme, hard stems removed
Cook for 2 minutes
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
3 large carrots, peeled and sliced
1 large golden beet, peeled and cubed
cook for two minutes stirring to coat the vegetables with all the herbs.
Add water to cover, more if you like a thinner soup.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Cover, bring to a boil and cook on low flame for 20-30 minutes, until all the vegetables are soft.
Serve with crumbled goat cheese and fresh chopped cilantro.
* Feel free to use butternut squash in addition or instead of other vegetables.
* You can use a regular beet, the soup will have a beautiful crimson color.
