Kripalu Recipe: Orange Soup

Kripalu School of Ayurveda

A perfect wintertime comfort food, with the added benefit of health-promoting herbs and spices.

Makes two small servings or one large serving.

1 sweet potato, peeled and chopped into chunks
2 carrots, chopped
1/2 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
1/2 tsp. ground turmeric
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
2 teaspoons ghee or olive oil
Salt to taste

Place the sweet potato, carrots, ginger, black pepper, and turmeric in in 2 inches of water in a stock pot. Bring to a boil and cook on medium-low heat until vegetables are soft. Check water level occasionally and keep water replenished as the veggies absorb it.

Once the vegetables are soft, place the mixture in a blender, or blend using a stick blender. Blend until smooth.

Pour in bowls, and top with ghee or olive oil and salt to taste.
