This was an adaptation from The Simple Kitchen.
2 Tbs coconut oil 2 cloves garlic 1 inch grated or diced fresh ginger 1 tsp turmeric Sauté the above ingredients for a few minutes then add 5 cups organic carrots (they are so sweet and flavorful) and sweet potatoes. I used 1/2 carrots and 1/2 sweet potatoes 2 cups vegetable broth salt and pepper to taste
Cook all of the above for about 25 minutes either mash with a spoon to keep the soup thick and chunky or purée in blender.
Top with sunflower seeds for a little crunch.
