For the Root Chakra I have decided on a recipe for Creamy Curried Root Vegetable Soup. If you don’t have the time or the resources to make this soup don’t worry! You can support your Root Chakra by simply adding some Root vegetables like carrots, potatoes, beets and radishes to your everyday meals. Red foods also support the Root Chakra as well as earthy spices.
Creamy Curried Root Vegetable Soup
This soup is perfect for the root chakra because it is comforting and grounding. It also has RED veggies (the Root chakra color), Root veggies and a little grounding spice from the curry. This will take about 1hr 40min to prepare but most of the time is allowing the veggies to cook. The finished soup will serve about 6.
2 Tablespoons Butter (or substitute it with olive oil for a vegan version)
6 Hakuei Turnips, chopped
6 Red Radishes (root chakra color!)
2 heads of garlic, chopped
6 green onions, chopped
5 carrots, peeled and chopped
1 ½ pounds Red Potatoes, cubed (root chakra color!)
1 quart vegetable stock
1 bay leaf
1 ½ cup milk (or coconut milk for vegan version)
3 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce (you can purchase vegan sauce or use balsamic as a substitute)
2 Tablespoons Curry Powder
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
Ground black pepper
1-Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat, cook and stir turnips, radishes, garlic and green onions for 3 minutes, add carrots and potatoes and vegetable stock and bring to a simmer. Add in the bay leaf and reduce temp to low. Cook for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2-Working in batches, pour the soup mixture into a blender, only filling it half full each time. Pulse several times then turn it on to puree until it is smooth. Pour pureed mix into a large saucepan over low heat.
3- After all of the turnip mixture is purred and in large saucepan stir in milk of your choice, Worcestershire sauce, curry powder, brown sugar and pepper into the soup. Cook and stir constituently until very well mixed. Simmer over low heat for 10 more minutes and then enjoy!
