The the combination of coconut milk, fennel and butternut squash really pumps up the sweet carrot flavor. 

It’s a great soup for your body, especially in the winter when you need lots of nutrients to support your immune system.

The carrots are high in beta carotene, a potent antioxidant that benefits your brain, skin, lungs, and eye health.

Fennel is a vegetable you may be less familiar with than broccoli or zucchini. But this bulbous fall veggie deserves to be part of your regular vegetable rotation because it has valuable antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory compounds. It’s especially soothing to your digestive system. 

The 2 most powerful ingredients in this soup are turmeric and ginger.  They are super foods on their own, but together they are a delicious culinary pair. 

Health Benefits of Ginger and Turmeric

Turmeric and ginger aren’t new foods; both have been consumed for thousands of years. They are regarded as some of the most healing spices out there.

Ginger originated in China where it was used as a spice and a medicine.  From there it spread through Asia and Europe and is included in many cuisines.  It’s also used as an herbal remedy for pain, digestive distress, motion sickness and nausea,.

Turmeric has also been historically grown in southeast Asia, with India still being the primary producer. It is known as the golden spice thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties. It has a beautiful rich, golden yellow color with a strong fragrance. It has been used for centuries for both flavor and color.
