What makes this Ayurvedic Tomato Soup Ayurvedic? Well, how you prepare it is the key.
Many of us sauté aromatics (celery, onion, carrots, garlic) in oil to bring out maximal flavour in soups and sauces. Ayurvedic cooking is much lighter.
Ayurveda is an ancient form of medicine based on the five elements and three body types. Each body type has certain foods that bring it to optimal health. Through all types, recipes for health avoid unnecessary oils, but that does not mean the results are less flavourful.
This Ayurvedic Tomato Soup is a great example. It maximizes flavour by using the freshest organic ingredients possible. Subtle spicing with ginger, garlic, onion and coriander also bring the dish to life. We also added a tablespoon of tomato paste because in testing we liked the depth of flavour it added.
This recipe comes from the professional cooks at Kalari Kovilakom. And they know Ayurveda.
