Fall, in all its vibrancy, can also tend to make us a little vulnerable health-wise. The wind and changing temperatures may leave us feeling dried out and susceptible to cracking joints, colds, and sometimes a seasonal flu. Here’s a solution: Never Get Sick Soup. I took a page from Strala Yoga founder and super nice human, Tara Stiles' Make Your Own Rules Cookbook,
(pre-order her new cookbook here
) and tested this super-simple soup chalk full of healthy, healing, and warming ingredients to help ward off any seasonal sickness. Ingredients
1 bell pepper (I used a combination of orange and yellow.) 2 handfuls spinach ½ onion (I used a red onion.) 1 teaspoon masala 1 teaspoon dijon 1 cup coconut milk 4 cups water (You can also sub out with vegetable broth.) olive oil hot sauce (I added a lot to spice it up.) rice noodles (Be careful with these, they may stick to your pans for the rest of their lives.) lemon Make It Happen
Simmer onions in medium sauce pan for a few minutes Chop and add bell pepper & spinach Simmer for a few minutes Add 4 cups water Bring to a boil Reduce heat and add spices and Dijon (I added a bit of turmeric & curry powder) Simmer for 20 minutes Add coconut milk Simmer for 5 minutes Prepare rice noodles Add rice noodles to soup Squeeze lemon Bon appétit! I would love to hear how it goes for you in the comments. Cheers to a healthy fall!
