This is a comforting soup, brimming with nutrients to bolster the immune system. Carrot and pumpkin offer antioxidants and vitamins renowned for strengthening the immune system. The warming ginger contains bioactive substances that make it a great fighter of infections. Winning!

The classic flavours in this soup are lifted by the addition of sizzling of mint butter, topped with some toasted almonds. You could also experiment with sage, paprika or cumin seed butter – just substitute the mint for the same quantity of a different herb or spice.

You’ll find this soup will be nice and thick, especially once it has cooled, so you may want to add some water when reheating.
