This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Kleenex but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #KleenexTarget  http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO

True confession, growing up I was never much of a tissue person. I use to get so embarrassed blowing my nose in public.  I feared one of those gross little “boogies” popping out of the tissue, and the noise… oh the noise! Plus, no body wants that red nose from all the blowing. But as I grew up and have now become a mom that Kleenex box does not leave my side! And to get ride of that dreaded “red nose”, I use Aloe Lotion Kleenex.

As we head into that pesky cold & flu season what are you doing to prepare? Do you have a “go-to” medicine you use? A movie that you curl up with and watch? What about a “go-to” soup that you make?

If you follow me on Instagram you would know that I am preparing by loading up on Kleenex for the season. But, I am also preparing lots of Orange Carrot Ginger Soup.

This soup is loaded with nutrients. It has tons of Vitamin A from the 2 lbs. of carrots used, a splash of Vitamin C from the Orange Zest and Ginger is a known therapeutic that helps with nausea and upper respiratory infections! Yeah, this soup is basically the super hero when it comes to fighting germs. Plus, it is super easy to make and the taste is absolutely amazing! You will crave it whether its cold & flu season or not. {at least I do}

To get started,  heat a large stock pot or dutch oven to medium high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 1 large diced onion. Saute until onions are slightly caramelized. {approximately 10 minutes}

Next, add 2 minced garlic cloves and 3 tablespoons of minced fresh ginger and saute for 30 seconds. Then add 1 russet potato {peeled and small diced}, 2 lbs of carrots {peeled and diced}, 6 cups of low sodium chicken broth, 1 tablespoon of orange zest, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper.

Cover and simmer for 45 minutes or until vegetables are soft. Next, use a submersion blender to puree the soup until it is a smooth consistency. {If you do not have a submersion blender, slowly ladle soup into a blender and blend soup in shifts} Serve with crunch bread!

  1. Great recipe, Krista! I used to be embarrassed to blow my nose at elementary school and would ask to go out in the hall to do it. Now I’m like you and always have Kleenex in my purse or pocket! We can’t keep enough in the house during cold season 🙂

  2. I’ve been the same way when I was younger. I’m loving this soup, girlfriend! You are always creative. Especially with the healthy stuff like this. Love your pics…and this is an amazing post! I’m so picky…that this is actually the only brand that I buy. Nothing’s worse than having a sore nose after it stops running! (=
