Weather is transitioning from autumn to winter and we are moving from one big festival of Diwali to Christmas. Ideal opportunity to bring in some hearty veg and spices together, allowing for some well needed detox to happen as we get ready for the upcoming festive feast. Tried this for the first time and believe me when I say it was delish…ginger is god sent! This soup will be making repeat appearances in my kitchen!
