{Sweet Roots} Sweet Potato, Carrot & Ginger Soup

One of my favorite people got married this past weekend, and I feel very honored to have been her MOH for her special day.  Everything was beautiful and all of the little details perfect.  Thank you so much to L&J for sharing your ♥ with us.

 Here is a recipe - sweet & easy just like you guys L&J :)

There's been a lot of root vegetables like Sweet potatoes and Carrots in our Produce box lately and I debated over what to make with them.  Root veggie baked chips? Muffins? Tarts? So many options, so little time!  In the end, I decided to go with this Sweet potato, carrot & ginger soup.  Mainly because I knew it would be quick and easy, and of couse nutritious and delicious as well.  A recipe that would fit perfectly into the rotation on those days you don't really want to spend too much time in the kitchen.  The ginger perfectly balances the sweetness of the potatoes and carrots, and the addition of cumin and nutmeg add just enough warmth to make it a perfect comfort dish.

I almost always start my soups with this trifecta of ingredients - olive oil, onions, and garlic/ginger.  Then add whatever main veggie you plan to use, add stock, season, and voila! A healthy meal with hardly any work (Except peeling the sweet potatoes...I do not enjoy having to peel vegetables...)
