Potato Leek Sunchoke Soup with Turmeric & Broccoli Sprouts

We were so thrilled when our friend and nutrition specialist, Kanchan Koya, PhD. of @chiefspicemama shared this recipe with us! We know that Gut Health = Good Health, and as Kanchan describes "This soup combines some serious gut health-boosting ingredients." We also love that she includes turmeric, an ancient root for modern health that we also sell as a supplement. Check out what else Kanchan has to say and give her recipe a try!

“Sunchokes, in particular, are packed with inulin, a fiber that is genuine gold for the good gut bacteria we want to nourish. These bacteria ingest the fiber and produce short chain fatty acids, which have beneficial effects throughout the body, including the suppression of unwanted inflammation! Broccoli sprouts are packed with sulforaphane, a powerful detoxification boosting and anti-inflammatory compound. If you can’t get your hands on broccoli sprouts, you can combine broccoli with mustard seed powder or radish to absorb the sulforaphane better.”
