Indulge in a nourishing green soup that's not only delicious but also supports your digestive fire, as per Ayurveda's warm food principle.
Coldness aggravates the vital bio energies Vata and Kapha. And specifically, when Vata is disturbed, all movements are upset from circulation to bowel movements. That’s why cold water is not recommended, room temperature water is the correct option especially in summer, contrary to what we may believe.
This recipe is a quick and easy way to enjoy a warm meal in just 10 minutes.
1 teaspoon of cow's ghee or coconut oil
2cm of grated ginger (peeled)
1 garlic clove
2 carrots (peeled if not organic)
¾ or 1 cup of green peas
3 cups of spinach
1 tablespoon of Boullion broth (vegan option recommended)
2-3 cups of water
Rock salt and black pepper to taste
Heat the cow's ghee or coconut oil in a pot and add the grated ginger. Once the ginger releases its aroma, add the onion.
Once the onions are translucent, add the carrots and Boullion. If using fresh green peas, add them now.
Once the carrots are tender, add the spinach, rock salt, black pepper, and frozen green peas (if using).
Turn off the heat and blend the soup using a hand blender.
Enjoy this wholesome soup as a starter to your meal and support your digestive fire with warm, nourishing food.
