Hands down one of my favorite soups to make, especially when I’m tight on time because… HELLO CROCKPOT!  This recipe is from an amazing book called The Healing Slow Cooker by Jennifer Iserloh. Definitely recommend adding it to your inspo bookshelf. I modified it by adding ginger for some extra digestive, warming qualities.

Modify for your Dosha

Vata: Add a little extra sesame drizzle to your bowl. Use less green tea bags to minimize caffeine, which can be vata aggravating if you feel ungrounded.

Pitta: Cut the ginger out of the recipe or use it minimally. Go wild with the cilantro. Add a little extra kale which contains magic powers to help your liver enzymes process toxins faster!

Kapha: Keep the agni kindling - digestive fire boosting heat with added ginger and scallion. Use the sesame drizzle sparingly. Enjoy!
