Carrot-Ginger Soup

Prep time: 50 minutes

What you need:

  • 1 tbsp. canola oil
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 lb. fresh carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1 tbsp. fresh grated ginger
  • 40 oz. low-sodium chicken broth

What to do:

  1. Heat canola oil over medium heat in a heavy saucepan.
  2. Add the onion and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the carrots and ginger and cook for another 5 minutes.
  4. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until carrots are tender and easily pierced by a fork.
  5. Carefully transfer the contents of the pot to a blender. Thoroughly blend the mixture. (If you have an immersion blender, you can blend the soup in the saucepan.)
  6. Return soup to the pot to warm, then serve.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A helps develop a baby's heart, eyes, and immune system. Good sources of vitamin A include milk, orange fruits and vegetables (such as cantaloupe, carrots, and sweet potatoes), and dark leafy greens. Prenatal vitamins should not contain more than 1,500 micrograms (5,000 IU) of vitamin A and pregnant women should not take vitamin A supplements. Both too little and too much vitamin A can harm a developing fetus.
