When talking about bloat busters and tummy tamers, ginger and turmeric are always in the conversation—both of which can also help reduce pain and inflammation, balance blood sugar, and promote brain health. 

But sometimes you get a little tired of sipping ginger tea or whipping up somewhat labor-intensive golden milk lattes. So we’ve concocted the bloat-busting soup of your dreams, featuring turmeric, ginger, easily digestible carrots, and creamy coconut milk for a delicious end result that will promote optimal digestion and keep you feeling satisfied (but not stuffed) for hours. (Also, be sure to check out the 6 best yoga poses to do if you're bloated. The supine twist is seriously effective!)

Bloat Busting Carrot-Ginger Turmeric Soup

Serves 4 - 6

2 lb carrots, scrubbed clean and coarsely chopped
2 cloves garlic
2 Tbsp olive oil
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
2 cups low sodium chicken or vegetable broth
1 13.5-oz can coconut milk
2" knob peeled fresh ginger, cut into slices
1" knob peeled fresh turmeric, cut into slices
½ tsp cinnamon
Greek yogurt, for serving
Lime wedges, for serving

1. Heat oven to 400℉. On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss the carrots, garlic, oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Roast until the carrots are completely tender, about 30-40 minutes.

 

2. Transfer the carrots and garlic to a blender with the broth, coconut milk, ginger, turmeric, and cinnamon. Puree until very smooth and pour into a medium saucepan. Cook over low and heat until warmed through. Do not boil or the coconut milk will separate. Season to taste with more salt and pepper. Top with a dollop of Greek yoghurt and serve with lime wedges.
