While cleaning up the refrigerator this morning, I saw this pack of carrots hiding behind the other stuff along with few beetroots . At that very instant I knew what to do with these two veggies today. Luckily, I even had Rosemary in the kitchen. So, the best option was to prepare a quick soup using all three along with a few other ingredients.

Rosemary when infused with the soups gives a wonderful strong aroma. Other than just aromatic significance, it has a bundle of other benefits hidden in the leaves.

Fresh rosemary leaves are a good source of antioxidant vitamin.The herb is exceptionally rich in many B-complex groups of vitamin, such as folic acid, pantothenic acid, pyridoxine, riboflavin. It is one of the herbs containing high levels of folates.

Medicinally, rosemary has been associated with memory since ancient times, and it has been referred as the herb of remembrance.

So, let’s just infuse the ‘Herb of Remembrance‘ in this yummie soup. And let’s try to revive all the forgotten memories while getting the bundle of other health benefits of this.
