Creamy Carrot & Kale Soup

Soothe yourself with this creamy soup, abundant with substantial nutrients and flavor.  Super seasonal and easy, the soup is a great way to get your veggies in.  The turmeric, known for anti-inflammatory properties, gives it richness you will crave.  Be sure to give your bowl a good turn of freshly ground pepper to unlock the turmeric magic.  I served it here with Elana’s sesame crackers made with protein rich almond flour.  Use heat friendly walnut oil to make the crackers.
