My 95th recipe, "Carrot Ginger Soup", another simple and delicious soup recipe from my kitchen. After a few days of nice sunshine, the last few days have been again days of gloom and rain. On such days there is nothing else to comfort me than a hot bowl of soup. The perfect way to start my day right. Though I am not a soup girl, I always enjoy soups made at home, since they are easy to make, delicious and healthy for you as well. By roaming outside on these rainy days I usually end up with atleast an stuffy nose if not with a severe cold and fever. So this time around on a precautionary note, I wanted to eat something that would help warm me up and as well as boost up my immunity. This Carrot Ginger soup is the perfect recipe to kill two birds with one stone. The spicy ginger gave me the warmth needed to tide over the cold weather. And the carrots and black pepper gave me the needed immune boost to help keep me away from dreaded cold and fever.
