Recipe for the Maha Detox
This soup is also a great way to detox thanks to the vegetables high in nutrients as well as the Ayurvedic spices which are both nourishing and detoxifying.
This is a fairly simple recipe and only takes about 40 minutes. Just make sure to skip out on any oils as this is a detox recipe. Don’t worry; you won’t feel a difference as the soup is so rich and most certainly not lacking in flavors.
Just follow these three simple rules to make sure you are doing it properly.
3 Simple Rules:
- It is of utmost importance to get fresh veggies
- Your home-made veggie stock should also be fresh
- Your Ayurvedic spices should be perfectly blended
The Ingredients You Need:
- One cup of assorted vegetables (celery, string beans, yellow/red peppers and onions)
- Half a cup of assorted root veggies (beets/yams or carrots)
- One cup of mixed baby greens (kale, spinach, and chard)
- Half a cup of red kidney beans (this is optional)
- Half a teaspoon of garlic-ginger paste (minced)
- Two to four teaspoons of an Ayurvedic mix of spices (coriander, turmeric, clove, cumin, cinnamon, black pepper)
- One to two cups of (preferably homemade) veggie stock
- One cup of water
- Some salt (for extra flavor)
How to Make it:
1. Your first step is to steam cook the root vegetables separately. This is so they can better incorporate themselves into the soup.
2. Take a big pot, set it on low heat, add the Ayurvedic mix of spices and just fry roast this mixture until a pleasant aroma wafts up to your nose
3. Next, you add the assorted vegetables (chopped) to the mixture, and then you sauté for a few minutes
4. Afterward, add one cup of vegetable stock and allow it to simmer, covering it with a lid. Wait about 15 to 20 minutes. Once the vegetables have acquired a mushy and translucent form, you add the extra vegetable stock as well as the chopped vegetables. Now let it simmer once more for about 10 minutes.
5. Your next move is to add the previously cooked root vegetables and some extra water to the soup. In order to achieve a better water consistency, you can add even more water to the soup. In the end, let it simmer for 5 minutes more. That’s it! Not too hard, is it?
Enjoy the great taste and health benefits. It’s best to eat it before it cools, of course.
