Very Gingery and Garlicky Chicken Soup

Very Gingery and Garlicky Chicken Soup

Sometimes I feel more like a mad scientist than a cook. That’s what soup making and a pantry full of ingredients can do to you. Here I’ve created a hybrid of chicken and miso soups. The miso matches well with the garlic, ginger, and shitake mushrooms, and it goes in at the end, when the soup is already hot, so it’s probiotics are preserved—great news for your digestion!

Kitchari

Kitchari

Kitchari, which means “mixture,” is a thousand-year-old staple of Ayurvedic healing that’s enjoying a moment these days—understandably! Nourishing and comforting, it’s really quite simple, traditionally being made with basmati rice, mung beans, and ghee. I’ve kicked it up quite a bit, adding onion, ginger, cauliflower, coriander, turmeric, and cumin, enhancing both flavor and texture. Try this one!
