Anti-inflammatory soup with carrot, ginger and turmeric

This soup is chock full of important anti-inflammatory nutrients… and most importantly – taste!

Carrots are a source of beta-carotene, a precursor for the antioxidant vitamin A required by the body to stabilise free radicals. Research has found psoriasis sufferers to be low in this key vitamin. Turmeric and ginger are great anti-inflammatory herbs and coconut oil has anti-bacterial and antiviral properties. You’ll need a great big saucepan for this one!

Optional: If you have the time to put in a bit more effort give this soup a protein punch by topping with toasted chickpeas and cashew nut cream
