Health-conscious foodies rejoice – The Cliff House Resort & Spa, an Ogunquit, Maine hotel, gives carrot soup a fresh spin while keeping it healthy and delicious.
The New Year is an ideal time to sample this spa-inspired recipe. The Cliff House, one of the premier spas in Maine, developed this recipe for spa guests and uses ingredients like pineapple and lime to turn up the heat while keeping calories down. Root vegetables give it a hearty, satisfying character.
Besides being nutritious and tasting great, the dish is also easy to make. Simply toss the ingredients into a saucepan, purée and serve with crusty whole wheat bread and light salad – a wonderful way to warm up and slim down this winter.
