Have you been indulging a bit too much, maybe? Feeling like the pipes are getting clogged?
Ayurveda Wellness Healing loves the below Detox Lentil Soup recipe:
Detox Lentil Soup
Makes 2-4 servings
1 cup Lentils
1 cup Red Quinoa, cooked
1/2 cup Onion, chopped
1-2 clove Garlic (or 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder), minced
1-2 teaspoons Ghee (alternatively: coconut, safflower or peanut oil)
1 scant teaspoon Garam Masala (or 1 pinch each: turmeric, coriander, ginger, cinnamon, cumin and/or clove)
1 Carrot, quartered and chopped
1 stalk Celery, cut into small pieces
1 cup Kale, stalks removed, leaves torn into small bits
2 cups Vegetable Broth (I like Pacific Foods Low Sodium)
pinch of Hing (optional)
Coconut or Bragg’s Liquid Aminos, or Tamari (gluten-free) to taste
Rinse lentils and drain. Melt 1 tsp. ghee over medium heat. Sprinkle in spices and sauté one minute. Add onion and cook a few minutes until it softens. Stir in lentils until thoroughly coated. Add carrot, celery, kale and cook a moment. Turn heat to high and add vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, then cover and turn heat to low.
Cook 20-25 minutes. Stir in Hing, optionally. Ladle the quinoa into bowls and pour the soup over. Season with Amino Acids or Tamari to taste.
