Who would expect that a little honey would make this otherwise slightly bitter soup not really sweet, but gives it a pleasant taste ?
Soups are an easy way to enjoy your veggie servings. How convenient, if you pre-cook an entire pot. Afterwards you only need to pull out a bowl for dinner and heat it up!
Benefits of Ginger
Use fresh ginger to boost your immune system by its anti-inflammatory effects. It may reduce muscle pain and soreness after a training session.
It can even improve your gut health, capable of reducing diarrhea and constipation. A healthy jewel for endurance athletes!

1 small piece of Fresh Ginger, chopped
1 large Onion, chopped
1 Yellow Summer Squash, chopped

1 Cup Water
1 Veggie Stock Cube
3 Tbsp Honey
In a medium size pot, saute the chopped onions and the ginger in the canola oil.
Add the rest of the ingredients, bring to a boil. Boil for 5-10 minutes until the squash is soft.
