Turmeric Corn Soup

Fragrant spices including turmeric, coriander and curry powder lend deep flavor to this soup without having to simmer on the stove top for hours. A drizzle of harissa, a Moroccan-style blend, adds a kick of spice, but you can easily omit it if you can’t find it.

Turmeric Corn Soup recipe

A surprising ally for your eyes: Corn isn’t a food that typically comes to mind when you think of eye health, but it actually contains two key carotenoids that do just that: Lutein and zeaxanthin both fight against eye damage from blue light or exposure to sun. The compounds may have a protective effect against eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration. We recommend opting for organic corn whenever possible.
