Immune-Boosting Ginger Squash Soup

Ginger Squash SoupGinger Squash Soup is perfect for keeping your immunity up in the dark cold winter months. Its immune-boosting oomph comes from turmeric, ginger, garlic, onions, as well as the high amounts of vitamin A and vitamin C from the rich orange vegetables. Every ingredient is anti-inflammatory and nutrient dense.

Add a whole wheat roll and a dollop of plain greek yogurt, and you have the perfect winter meal.

Immune-Boosting Ginger Squash Soup

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil or other heart-healthy oil
  • 1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cubed
  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2-3 carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 4 cups vegetable stock (I used my homemade chicken stock)
  • 1 tsp ground or grated ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • salt to taste (I used 1 tsp)

Instructions

  1. In a large stock pot, saute the garlic and onions on medium heat in the oil until translucent. Do not overcook. Stir constantly.
  2. Dump all the chopped veggies into the pot with the 4 cups of stock. Bring to a boil on medium-high heat.
  3. Turn down the heat and simmer on medium low until the mixture is very soft. This takes about 20-30 minutes. Stir periodically.
  4. Using a stick blender, slowly blend the soup until it is a uniform consistency.
  5. Add the ginger, turmeric, salt, and pepper.
  6. Simmer on low for 10 minutes until all the flavors are blended.
  7. Serve warm, with a dollop of plain greek yogurt if desired.
