Vegan Ayurvedic Cleansing Soup


Many cultures believe that soup has a magical healing effect. The base of this soup is the one I learned in my ayurveda classes in India, I just added some extra ingredients to make it more tasty. It contains all the herbs that help your body to digest better, cleanses your blood and lymphatic system and boosts your immune system. In addition it hydrates well, which is extremely important during winter season because the cold dries out the body inside-out.
