Curried Carrot Ginger Soup

Things have started to cool off here in San Diego.  Any of my East Coast readers are probably rolling their eyes and huffing at the concept of cool here in the best coast, I mean the West Coast.  As per my definition of cool, less than 65 degrees, it is cool here!

Dairy-Free Tzatziki {Paleo, 21DSD}
