Notes

Slowly simmered vegetables over low heat results in a mineral-rich soup, while lightly roasting or steaming the vegetables preserves their antioxidants, anti-inflammatory compounds, and most of their vitamins. I made my soup with lightly roasted carrot and garlic for an intense flavor and spiced it up with turmeric and ginger.
Feel free to use any other root vegetables you like.
