This vegan Carrot Lentil Soup contains lots of anti-inflammatory ingredients that will help to boost your immune system and provide healing benefits to your entire body. The ingredients in Superfood Turmeric, including turmeric, cinnamon, and ginger, have been used for centuries to provide health benefits, in addition to adding color and warming, exotic flavors to foods. This fragrant soup is easy to make, and tastes light yet slightly spicy from the cayenne pepper. The squirt of lemon and the chives bring together all the flavors of this nourishing soup.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This Carrot Lentil Soup is packed with healthy nutrients and perfect for a cozy night in. Red lentils are a great protein source, especially for vegetarians - 1 cup is almost 40% of your daily intake. They are also very low in fat and have a good dose of iron and B vitamins. The ginger in Superfood Turmeric also adds tons of benefits. Not only is it anti-inflammatory and full of antioxidants, it can help with things like nausea, muscle soreness, and even regulating blood glucose.

Founder's story:

"My father had just been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, my mom was
managing her hypothyroid, and my best friend was struggling with painful IBS.
I went online to search for food-based and natural solutions that could help
them heal. But what I found was scattered, disorganized, and left me more confused. I thought, ‘There must be an easier way to discover solutions for various ailments from real experts and from people who had done it themselves. So I decided to build a resource—a platform for food as medicine solutions
for all your health needs. And I decided to take the wisdom from this community to create real food based products that heal.

    How can the recipe have no fats if you’re using coconut oil? I’m a little bit confused about the nutrition information.
