4. Golden Vegetable Soup

Turmeric is in the spotlight for super immunity foods at the moment, but with its pungent flavor and oftentimes off-putting texture, it can be a hard sell. A rich and creamy Golden Vegetable soup disguises turmeric into a silky puree with Vitamin A-rich sweet potatoes and carrots. Visit Cooking Light for the recipe.
