Lemongrass infused carrot and lentil cream

Lemongrass infused carrot and lentil cream

A delicious healthy recipe ,Vegan and Gluten free.

I’ve always been a fan of creamy soups,This recipe is great because it gets the  health boost from the fresh turmeric  and plenty of protein from the nuts and lentils . I love the creaminess that you can get from cashews ,without the need of using any commercial  dairy cream .

I hope you willenjoy this nourishing soup as much as I do .
