Back to my weekly Soup Notes -- to inspire us all, and to further inform my local soup subscribers...This week I've created the Triple Healing Bean Soup - with Gujarati Jain origins, I have elaborated and changed an ingredient or two.
The ingredients begin with mung, adziki and black beans - soaked overnite along with wild rice. Adding more healing properties to the powerhouse proteins, is the dried Chinese yam, sweet potato, fresh shitake mushrooms, onions, leeks, parsnips and carrots sauteed in a scant bit of olive oil and coconut oil. I've used mostly traditional spices, cumin seeds and powder, coriander powder, tumeric, dried ginger, paprika, cayenne, plus cracked lemon-pepper, garlic and shallots. Packaged separately is some copped fresh cilantro to garnish, and the very green in the quart is chopped fresh spinach.
Stream of consciousness chanting accompanied the preparations and the final blessing was Om Shanti Om -- Peace --
Even though the 21-day kickstart is winding down, the resources are always available. And if you are interested in a week-end Spring-Summer transition healthy kickstart, consider joining me and three colleagues leading the Wellness Week-end Getaway in Chautauqua Memorial Day week-end.
