During the cold winter, heat your body with this delicious soup. This ayurvedic detox soup with apple and broccoli is exclusive from Ayurveda Parkschlösschen’s head chef.
According to Ayurveda, one of the best way to keep your body and mind in balance during cold days is to introduce warmth by eating earthier, warmer, richer foods.
For 4 servings you will need:
- 1-2 heads of broccoli
- 1 medium onion
- ¼ celeriac
- 1 apple
- 300 ml coconut milk or 150 gr creamed coconut or 60 gr powdered coconut
- approx. 1-1,5 liters hearty vegetable stock (optionally made from stock powder or cube)
- 1 tsp cumin (cumin seed)
- 1 tsp yellow mustard seed
- 1 tsp anise
- ground coriander
- lime juice
- brown sugar
First, cut the broccoli, onion and celeriac into small pieces.
Then, peel, core and mince the apple. Set aside.
After that, heat the ghee over medium heat in a large saucepan. Add the cumin, anise and mustard seed and stir-fry gently until the mustard seeds begin to pop. Now add in the vegetables and coriander and sauté for 2 minutes.
Next, add the vegetable stock and the coconut. Bring to a boil and leave to simmer for 20 minutes.
When the vegetables are cooked through, puree the soup until you have reached a very fine and smooth consistency. You may want to add more stock if the soup is too thick.
Lastly, season with salt, pepper, lime juice and a little bit of brown sugar. In the end, stir in the diced apple and serve.
