Fruity sweet potato and orange soup

The perfect recipe for a cozy winter dinner.

Soups are as much a part of Ayurveda as rice and dal. They are perfect for dinner because they are warm and easy to digest, so it doesn't put a strain on our digestion at night.


This fruity sweet potato orange soup with root vegetables and sesame oil balances the Vata and Kapha dosha. The Agni-stimulating spices in our YOGI TEA® Turmeric Orange are ideal to warm us in winter and support our immune system.
