Carrot and Ginger Spiced Soup with Magical Wild Orange Oil
A glistening bowl of this Carrot and Ginger Spiced Soup is pure sunshine on a cloud day! This soup comforts, replenishes and heals. Thanks to the antioxidants, gelatin, vitamins, nourishing fats and spices it’s a powerhouse of a soup!
Wild Orange* essential oil adds a magical, uplifting note to bring out all the subtle flavours of the soup.
Serve with traditionally made, toasted sourdough bread spread with grass-fed organic butter. Or, for a more substantial meal spread the toasts thickly with home made labneh or yoghurt, or smoked mackerel pate.
Cooking with Essential Oils
100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oils are versatile in the kitchen and add intense flavour with therapeutic benefits to your dishes. They’re also convenient – saving you time and money. Pure essential oils are potent, so you’ll only need a few drops (or even a toothpick-tip or two!) and there’ll be no more binning of surplus expensive herbs, or fiddly grating of citrus zest – or your fingers!
Hight heat will impair the more volatile ‘top-notes’ of essential oils. In cold beverages and dressings there’s no problem, but in cooked dishes add the oils as ‘accents’ when the dish has cooled down a little. If this isn’t possible (e.g. in baked goods) then you may need to add a couple of extra drops – just experiment to your personal taste!
I love using essential oils – and use them daily. BUT – please, please do your research, as not all essential oils are pure or safe. Please ensure any oils you use (whether in food, on your skin or diffused) are 100% pure, therapeutic grade. From my own experience, I can recommend this brand and use these oils for myself, my family and with my clients.
Pasture-raised meats, dairy, eggs and wild caught fish have a vastly superior nutritional profile, as do organic, or cleanly grown fruits and vegetables. Please try to source your food as well as you are able.
