It can be packed full of veggies, ethical slow cooked meats and nourishing, active ingredients to maintain the glow…
Butternut Soup Revamped
I love a good Butternut Soup and this recipe does not disappoint. You can use a basic butternut soup recipe, and add your favourite flavours through adding spices, chili, other veggies and active ingredients for added benefits.
This recipe consists of slow cooked butternut chunks in coconut milk, with fresh turmeric and ginger. Kicking things up in the flavour department, I added a small bird’s eye chili with nutmeg and pinch of cinnamon. The fresh turmeric is the star here, adding that familiar pungent, deep flavour.
A Healthy Dose of Soup
Nutrition wise, this Butternut and Turmeric Glow Soup is as good as it gets. Butternut is not only low in fat, but promises to deliver an ample amount of dietary fibre, which is great for our heart. It has high levels of potassium and Vit B6, promoting bone health and proper functioning of the immune and nervous systems. A great nutritious recipe with fresh turmeric, is this Tropical Turmeric and Coconut Lassi, where I marvel about the health benefits of this ingredient.
Get the Turmeric Glow
Largely due to the active ingredient, curcumin, Turmeric is a great antioxidant and inflammation fighter. Definitely an ingredient to utilise more when we hit the winter months, to keep our immune systems happy and healthy. Even more reasons to use this versatile ingredient in this wholesome soup recipe.
Soup for Supper
