23 Feb Split Pea Soup with Pork, Lemon and Tarragon
There’s nothing better to calm vata, relieve stress and soothe an anxious mind that a bowl of warm soup. Soup is grounding and healing. I was never a fan of split peas growing up. They are very astringent and drying, which make them more suitable for pitta and kapha. But, now I love them with liberal doses of lemon and a little tarragon and mint!
I’ve added a garnish of Belcampo, pasture-raised organic pork. This will satisfy the meat eaters while giving the non-meat eaters the ability to opt-out without feeling left out. For more ways to simplify family eating, check out The Essential Ayurvedic Cookbook available at Amazon.
