Perhaps you’ve been up most of the night with a sick child, and have a sore throat threatening. Perhaps you’re beginning to regret those last couple of hours gardening in the autumnal mist yesterday. Perhaps you’re heartbroken, or just on the edge of the winter blues. This is a soup for you! It warms you from your tummy to the tips of your fingers and toes. Famed for its medicinal qualities, it’s the turmeric here that’s the star of the show, and that makes this soup as truly healthy as it is delicious.

Ingredients

2 tbsp oil

1 onion, diced

750g carrots, diced

2 sticks celery, chopped

2-inch piece of root ginger, grated

2½  tsps turmeric

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1 litre vegetable stock

Salt and pepper to taste

Method

Heat the oil and saute the onion, carrots and celery until soft. Add the ginger, turmeric and garlic and cook for a further two to three minutes. Pour in the stock and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until the carrots are tender. When cool, liquidise to your preferred consistency and season to taste.

Golden-yellow and orange, it’s Autumn in a bowl!
