Snack of the Day: Easy Healthy Carrot Soup

It's a rainy day here, so perfect for soup! Today I made a carrot soup that's not only delicious, but easy on the digestive system, very healthy, and minimal ingredients are required.

It's very simple to make.

Fill a large pot with six cups of water and bring the water to a boil.
To the boiling water, add about 3 cups of diced carrots (this is about one 16 oz package of baby carrots), one diced medium red onion, grated ginger from about 1 in of a root, and 1-2 teaspoons of ground black pepper (this is a personal taste). You can add salt, though I tend to avoid this. Boil this concoction for 15 minutes.

After the 15 minutes have passed, pour the contents of the pot into a blender. Blend the contents until the soup has a creamy texture, or the texture you prefer. You can add additional ginger at this point.

When you serve the soup, you can add Italian parsley for decoration, just to feel fancy or impress guests.

Simple. Delicious. Healthy.
