Spicy Carrot Soup

Happy Sunday! We here in the Midwest are enjoying wind chills in the double digits! I have been craving soups after the heavy foods from the holidays. I was trying to decide what I wanted to make. Then I was gifted with 6 lbs. of carrots from my dad. So what's a girl to do? Make recipes with carrots, of course! Since I am getting ready to do a 21 day real food challenge from RESTART®, I decided a carrot soup full of bone broth would be just what I needed. It’s full of good fats, aromatic spices that warm you on even the coldest winter day. This recipe has a vegan option for those who choose to use vegetable broth.
