Is there anything more comforting on a winter’s night than a warming soup? Often we turn to ingredients like chillies to add heat or warmth to a recipe, but did you know that chillies actually disperse heat in the body? What that means it that the warming sensation you enjoy (or not enjoy, if spicy dishes aren’t your thing) is temporary – that’s why you sweat when you eat a spicy meal!
Unlike chillies, ginger has a warming effect and is also believed to have antioxidant properties, which helps to fight free radicals in the body. Ginger is also a great ingredient for adding spice if you are avoiding nightshades.
Also, it’s just a really delicious and easy soup recipe!
