3 carrots, peeled and chopped
1 green apple, peeled, quartered, and chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 inch fresh ginger, minced
1⁄2 teaspoon turmeric
Dash ground cloves
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Himalayan sea salt and pepper to taste
Heat extra virgin olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, cardamon, and cloves, and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add carrots, apple, squash, and 3 cups water.
Bring to a boil; cover partially, and reduce to a simmer. Cook until vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup, and then season with Himalayan sea salt and pepper to taste. Let cool slightly before serving.
