    Warm and soothing soup goes wonderfully with cornbread. This meal has warm, rich
    colors, too. Creative options are listed to beef-up (sorry, Vegans!) the substance
    and proteins for all of you, vegans to carnivores! The blue cornbread adds color
    and even spice if you choose to make it with chili peppers.

    CREAM OF CARROT SOUP

    Wash, cut and cook until soft enough to blend (if you have a Vitamix or strong blending

    1/2 large organic onion and sauté in ghee. Blend carrots and add sautéed
    onions, plus: 1 cup organic almond or rice milk, organic milk or 1/2 cup organic
    cream. [For variation, add other chopped organic veggies, such as tomatoes, celery,
    mushrooms or bok choy. Raw, organic, soaked (germinated) nuts and seeds may be blended
    into carrot mixture with blender or Vitamix for added nutrition/protein, or chopped
    organic seafood or chopped organic salty meats that would taste good with a sweet
    background of carrots.]
