This spicy, warming soup has a perfect variety of ingredients to help with overall health and wellbeing. Turmeric and ginger have anti-inflammatory properties and may support the immune system as well as sore, achy joints. Sweet potatoes are rich in beta-carotene, necessary to form vitamin A which is essential for eye health, digestion and the immune system. The chickpeas are a good source of protein. Eating protein with every meal, as well as eating complex carbohydrates such as vegetables helps sustain energy levels throughout the day. The soup can be made in batches and frozen.
