Creamy, warm, and skin nutritious, this soup is a transition dish into the new Autumn weather.
The popular root vegetable carrot is high in beta carotene, an antioxidant that is converted to vitamin A inside the body. This helps repair skin tissue and protects against harsh UV rays. Ginger is known as a healing food remedy for everything from upset stomachs to cold and flu symptoms. However it also has equally impressive skincare benefits. It contains around 40 antioxidant properties that prevent free radical damage and protect against aging.
The two paired together in this recipe compliment each other by creating a slight spiciness with a mild carrot taste.

Toasted pine nuts to top
