Carrot and Apple Soup (Gluten-Free)

Sweet apples and sophisticated spices amplify this otherwise unassuming version of carrot soup. This soup is an excellent way to offer your family or guests the nutritional benefits of fruits and vegetables in one pot. Including the fresh apple creates another layer of texture and complements the freshness of the apples in the soup. Whether you’re using it as a starter to your meal, or enjoying a large bowl to yourself while curled up during these chilling winter months, this soup is satisfying without being overbearing.

Ingredients:
1½ pounds peeled and diced carrots
1 Fuji or Braburn apple peeled and diced, divided
1½ teaspoons freshly grated ginger
1 medium diced white onion
½ cup apple juice
3½ cups chicken broth
2 tablespoons olive oil
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon allspice
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
Chopped mint for garnish

Preparation:
Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Sauté onions until they begin to sweat and are translucent, about 2 minutes.

Add chicken broth, ¾ cup apple, ginger, diced carrot. Stir and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and allow to simmer 20-30 minutes, or until carrots are tender when pierced.

Puree soup in batches in the blender and return to pan. Add apple juice and spices and reheat on low-medium heat. Season with salt and pepper.

Mix remaining apple with mint in a bowl. Ladle soup into serving bowls and garnish with apple-mint mixture.

Thought cyrex is very similar to a celiac testing panel? Mostly I was just curious if IGG test results are worth anything as an indicator. I've read they can just indicate that you're actually tolerate or have recent eaten the foods (I was prior to the test).

The other alternative is just eliminating it from your diet and seeing if you do end up feeling better. There?s a chance your not celiacs and could be intolerant which is just as bad for reactions but can?t be proven with the celiac testing. It depends on how bad you would feel eating it every ...

I am the only one in my immediate family (out of my 3 siblings and both parents) to have celiacs even thought I inherited the autoimmune thyroid issues from my parents, but have a second cousin who was diagnosed 8 years ago and that?s it.

One other thought to consider is other food allergies/intolerances you may have that you didn?t know of before that could be causing this change. Is there any food that you may have added in or increased the frequency of eating since removing gluten from your diet? I know this has happened with...

Hey I?m new here too- but totally get what your talking about! I have some friends that claim to be ?gluten free? but if they are hungry will eat a piece of bread and it can be frustrating to have them later complain to you about how hard it is to eat a gluten-free diet!
