Creamy Root Soup
Makes about 10 1-cup servings

This soup is made with a variety of root vegetables and supplies an assortment of cancer-fighting antioxidants to help prevent free radical damage. Rutabaga is a type of cruciferous vegetable, which contains the antioxidants b-carotene and sulforaphane, which are particularly important for protecting against breast cancer. This recipe also includes a variety of healthful spices such as turmeric and curry, which contain the cancer-fighting compound curcumin.

3 1/2–4 cups water or vegetable broth, divided (1/2 cup plus 3 cups plus 1/2 cup)
1 large onion, chopped
1 large baking potato, chopped
2 large carrots, sliced
1 medium rutabaga, peeled and chopped
1 large sweet potato, chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper or cayenne pepper
4 cups washed, coarsely chopped fresh spinach

Heat 1/2 cup water or broth in a large pot. Add onion and cook over high heat, stirring often, until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.

Stir in 3 cups water or broth and remaining ingredients except spinach. Bring to a simmer, then cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender and the soup is thickened, about 30 minutes.

Stir in spinach and simmer until just tender, about 5 minutes. Add remaining 1/2 cup water or broth, if desired, for a thinner soup.
