Ayurveda Q&A with Dr. John Douillard: Easy Winter Soup for Healthy (and Lazy) Bachelors.

I rarely cook at home. When I do, I often eat soup. What are some simple and easy winter recipes?

For those bachelor types who often go hungry in the winter months, here is my favorite and extremely simple winter soup recipe that “anyone” can make! Boil some carrots and beets ’till they are soft, with a little ginger, garlic and salt. Strain off the water and add rice milk. Blend into a soup, reheat and eat.

Enjoy this with some warm Italian bread dipped in olive oil with a touch of lemon and salt. This warm, hardy soup is perfect for cold winter nights. To follow your soup, how about a good winter tea blend? The best winter teas are similar to many chai blends and start with warming spices like ginger, clove, cardamom and cinnamon.
