Apple Carrot Ginger Soup

Apple Carrot Ginger Soup | 20 Minute Meals | Eat Well at Festival Foods There is nothing better than sitting down to a warm bowl of comforting soup on a blustery day. With a creamy blend of naturally sweet carrots and apples, satisfying coconut milk and just a hint of heart-warming spice, this soup recipe certainly fits the bill! And, to make things even better, this scrumptious soup recipe utilizes one of our dietitian team's favorite, time-saving, kitchen gadgets –the slow cooker!

As you’re perusing the ingredient list of today’s soup recipe, you may notice a more unique ingredient called garam masala. Garam masala is a fragrant, flavor-packed blend of different spices, including cumin, coriander, cinnamon and black pepper, and it is a key ingredient in many Indian-style dishes. You can certainly find garam masala in your local Festival Food’s baking aisle, but if you don’t happen to have it on hand, allspice or pumpkin pie spice make for delicious substitutions.
