Post 20 of 365 Real Foods Series: Coconut Carrot Soup

I woke this morning with plenty of energy; however, by noon I could feel a cold coming on. I fought off the last cold with my winter soup (http://thejoyfulhomemaker.com/?p=649) so this time I took some Sambucol and made a batch of this good stuff. 🙂

I have been making this soup for years. It is a soup I turn to when I am sick or need an immune system boost. It is a very simple, tasty delight. It makes a great comfort food and uses healthful ingredients. I love coconut milk and I really enjoy cooking with it. It is thick and holds up well in this recipe.

  1. CJ and Eliza LOVED this soup and thought we should have it more often! It was so creamy, nourishing, and we all loved it. This will appear regularly on my lunch menu from now on.
