This is a warming soup or kitchari that is both rejuvenating and delicious!

Great soup for the warmer weather. For extra nourishment you could sprinkle a little vitamineral earth on your soup or stir in a tsp or so before eating it!

healing and light kitchari summer soup

3 -4 carrots sliced

a bunch of parsley chopped

1 large yellow onion chopped

3/4 red lentils

3/4 cup millet

Heaping tbsp dulse flakes

Tbsp each of ground ginger, turmeric and cumin seeds

3/4 Tbsp coriander

Chop it all up and put it in a large instant pot or large pan. Add lentils, millet and spices. Pour in almost a gallon of water and stir. Put the lid on instant pot and use 30 minute soup setting. (If your using a large pan, bring soup to boil and reduce heat. Let it simmer until it is cooked to your preference. The longer you can simmer it, the better it will be.) Let it sit for at least an hour after instant pot cycle finishes so steam can keep cooking it. You can add your own desired salt to the entire pot or by serving (which is what I do because I don’t add salt to my food personally.) You can add ghee, olive oil or any fat you choose. You can add yogurt, sauerkraut or a little cayenne. You can also sprinkle with roasted sunflower seeds and coconut aminos before serving.

* I love to add up to a pound of spinach before cooking. Just hope it all fits in your pan! I pack it in there pretty tight – and it cooks down. The spinach has a lot of minerals so it’s super healthy to add it when you can.
