Maha Detox Soup Recipe
The 3 basic ‘rules’:
- Choose fresh produce only
- Use homemade vegetable stock
- The Ayurvedic spices need to be ideally mixed
You will need:
A cup of celery, yellow peppers, string beans, and onions; chopped
½ cup of root veggies like beets or carrots
A cup of green veggie mix (chard, spinach, and kale)
½ cup of red kidney beans
½ tsp of garlic and ginger paste
2 tsp of Ayurvedic spice mix (black pepper, coriander, turmeric, clove, cinnamon, and cumin)
2 cups of veggie stock
A cup of water
Sea salt, ½ tsp
Preparation: Steam-cook the root veggies first. In a pot, add the Ayurvedic spices and bring them to low heat. Roast them until a pleasant aroma begins to spread. Add the mixture of chopped veggies and sauté them for a couple of minutes. Now, add one cup of veggie stock and leave the mixture to simmer by covering it with a lid.
After 15 minutes or once the veggies have become softer, add the other veggie stock cup and the remaining veggies. Simmer for 10 more minutes. Next, add the root veggies and the water. Simmer for 5 minutes. Turnoff the heat and remove the pot from the stove. Serve while warm. Enjoy!
