It’s beginning to feel a lot like soup season, and this easy microwave carrot ginger soup has been on repeat in my kitchen lately.
In addition to being so easy my 6-year-old can make it (with help carrying the hot bowl, of course), this soup:
- comes together in 7 minutes.
- provides 500% of the RDA for vitamin A (great for healthy eyes and a strong immune system!)
- packs a decent fiber punch.
This one goes well with a big chicken salad at lunchtime. It’s also an easy snack–just be sure to pair it with a lean protein to help you stay satisfied until your next meal.
