NOTE: This soup will not sit well with those patients who have severe Candida overgrowth (severe symptoms) and are in the 1st couple months of a Candida Detox due to the heavy tomato & carrot content. If you try it but feel bloated, foggy, constipated or achy afterward then you know it's best to not eat this and try again in a few months. Once your gut heals you will be able to handle all kinds of whole foods again and thrive!
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 white onion, chopped
5 garlic cloves, chopped
1 can (14 oz) plum tomatoes or approx. 6 fresh tomatoes, chopped
1 can (14 oz) full fat coconut milk
*2 capsules Nature's Sunshine Curcumin BP (see note below)
1 tsp Himalayan (pink) sea salt
10 medium carrots, rinsed, ends chopped off, broken in half
Black pepper, to taste
Heat coconut oil in a skillet. Saute your onions and garlic and until soft and fragrant. Set aside.
Add tomatoes, Curcumin BP (or turmeric), salt and 1 can of coconut milk to a high speed blender and puree on high until you get a smooth consistency. Pour the puree into a large pot on medium heat. Next, add your raw, broken carrots to the high speed blender, adding only the necessary water to get them to puree. If you have a Vitamix, add the cooked ingredients to the blender & continue blending until your soup is just warm enough to enjoy... less cooking/heating = more nutrition/medicine!
If you do not have a Vitamix to heat the soup simply from high-power blending, then pour your carrot puree into the pot with the tomatoes and mix together. Add black pepper to taste. Again, only cook until you reach your desired heat. Add additional salt or garlic to accommodate your palate.
NOTE: I always add a spoonful of coconut oil to soups and warm things for added nutrition and sun screen ;) Yep, eat your sun screen daily (good fats) and you won't have to lather yourself in cancer-causing chemical sunscreen in the sun/summer.
*The Curcumin BP is a powerful propietary blend I carry that is 2000x stronger (anti-inflammatory & so much more!) than simply using ground 1 tsp turmeric and a sprinkle of black pepper. If you really want the medicinal benefits (helps with arthritis, Candida overgrowth, auto-immune disease, digestion, etc), I do recommend purchasing this product at wholesale cost through my ONLINE STORE. Many of my recipes incorporate herbs & essential oils so that our food is ALWAYS medicine!!
DON'T FEEL GUILTY IF YOU EAT THE WHOLE BATCH OF SOUP!!! (for me it serves 2, not 6...ha!)
