Carrot, Cashew, and Ginger Soup
- Heat the olive oil in a medium soup pot over medium heat. Add cashews and stir constantly until golden brown and toasted. Use caution nuts burn very easily. Remove nuts and set aside.
- Add onion and cook over medium heat until translucent. Add ginger, garlic, salt, and spices. Lower the heat and continue to saute for another 8-10 minutes, until the onions are soft.
- Add carrots, turnips, and 4 cups of water. Bring to a rolling boil and cook until tender, about 10-15 minutes. Add cashews. Cook for 5-10 more minutes.
- Remove from heat. Add lemon juice. Use a immersion blender to puree the mixture until smooth. Add water as necessary to reach desired consistency.
