I LOVE curries and Asian flavours when I’m cooking in the kitchen! Not only do I think that they are super delicious but I know that the herbs and spices used to cook some of these culinary delights are so beneficial for our digestive system, our immune system and just our health in general that there’s no darn reason not to enjoy.
 
With the cold weather finally setting in and cold and flu season is upon us, I grabbed my Vitamix and whipped up a warm, healing and immune boosting soup. It has just the right balance of flavour and freshness that it tastes so light, it can be enjoyed all year around too.
