Notes

The caloric value was calculated per serving.
Recommendations for doshas:
Vata: Is an excellent, warming soup for Vata with lot of spices that support the digestive fire. Additionally, to avoid bloating, you can use potatoes instead of cauliflower. Cream is also good tolerated.
Pitta: reduce the number of hot spices, especially in summer. Cardamon, coriander, and mint are good examples of beneficial spices for Pitta.
• Kapha: Is a good soup for Kapha. The Spices in this recipe have a positive impact on digestion and balance the effect of pumpkin, which tends to increase Kapha energy. Avoid extra cream or nutbutter.
