Ayurvedic minestrone

As autumn approaches, warming colours flourish all around! Lush green leaves turn orange and the sun draws in earlier in the evenings meaning it is the perfect time to get cosy in the kitchen cooking up comforting creations.


Our vegan Ayurvedic Minestrone recipe warms the body AND the mind starting from within. It combines a delicious variety of hearty vegetables which bring autumnal colours into your kitchen – a bowl of this healthy soup really does feel like a warm hug! What makes this recipe extra special is our secret ingredient YOGI  TEA® Bedtime, adding an extra soothing Ayurvedic quality as the notes of chamomile blossom, fennel and valerian root help us to relax.
