Carrot and Sweet Potato Soup with Ginger

CarrotSweetPotatoSoup
One of the things I absolutely love this time of year is a steaming bowl of delicious soup!
It has a way of lifting my mood if it needs lifting and fills me with warmth from head to toe.

This carrot and sweet potato soup is simple and absolutely delicious. The delicate flavors of the carrots and sweet potato are beautifully enhanced by the fresh ginger. I only use a handful of ingredients that I tend to always have stocked up so it’s easy to make on a whim.

Enjoy!
