Cooking is one of my passions. Though I am working, I make nutritious and tasty food at home. My food has less oil and no artificial color.

Carrot, Apple, and Ginger Soup

A Steaming Hot and Spicy Soup for the Winter or Cold Evening

Restaurants serve thick soups that I don't like. I prefer to make moderately thin consistency soups at home. This carrot, apple, and ginger soup is a rare combination of vegetables, fruits, herbs, and spices. If you look into the ingredients, each of them provides health benefits.

This is the perfect cold weather soup. Now, let me share the recipe.
