Carrot Turmeric Soup (Vegan & Gluten-free)





Monday is here again !! Monday means there must be a post for Foodie Monday Blog Hop team. This time the theme (167th) is decided as 'Rooting for roots except potato'. That means we have to make a post using any root vegetable but not the potato. Well root vegetables are the vegetables which are grown underground. They have the leafy green stems that grow above the ground basically. 


There are a no of root vegetables that easily available in market like carrot, turnip, potato, sweet potato, beet, turmeric, radish, ginger, yam etc during winters as compare to other season. Since the root vegetables grow underground, so they can easily absorb a great amount of nutrients and minerals available in the soil. Though these are dirty and ugly look-wise and also inexpensive, still are loaded with a high concentration of antioxidants, Vitamins A, B, C, iron etc. So for theme I have chosen carrot, fresh turmeric and prepared a soup as 'Carrot Turmeric Soup'.




This warming soup is totally vegan and gluten free. Hardly within 30 minutes, the soup gets ready to serve using only 5-6 ingredients. The vegetable stock used here is homemade one. The consistency of the soup totally depends upon individual desires. And accordingly the amount of stock used can be varied. The use of fresh turmeric here gives a warm taste as well as a lovely color. This hearty and comforting soup is bursting with flavors. I have added some cream while serving, but it's optional.
