Whenever spring arrives, I tend to get a case of the sniffles. It is probably just seasonal allergies, but I also get paranoid that I’m coming down with a cold. To make sure that I stay healthy, I try to cook nutrient-rich dishes that are also packed with immunity-boosting ingredients. One of these dishes is my carrot and sweet potato soup.
Years ago, I found a dill creamy carrot and sweet potato soup recipe in The Big Book of Soups & Stews by Maryana Vollstedt, and I fell in love with it. I usually change the recipe a bit every time I make it. The original recipe already included onions and garlic, which are great for our immune system. This time, I included more spices, such as ginger and thyme, to give the soup additional boosts.
