Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 small shallots, peeled and cut into quarters
  • 48 oz. gluten-free chicken stock
  • 10 large carrots, peeled and cut into 1" cubes
  • ¼ cup grated fresh turmeric root
  • 2 Tbsp. grated fresh gingerroot
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt

Directions

  • In a large pot (6 quarts or larger), heat the olive oil on medium-low. Add the garlic, coconut oil, and shallots, stirring until the shallots become translucent. This takes approximately 5 minutes.
  • Add the stock, carrots, turmeric, and ginger. Cover and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat to low and let simmer until the carrots are tender and fully cooked (easily pierced with a fork). This process takes 10–15 minutes.
