Soups are a wonderful Ayurvedic meal option; they are easy to digest, warming, nourishing and filling. They are also a wonderful way of getting your vegetables. Soups can be nutritious precursors to a light meal or even a meal in themselves. This chapter has both.

Soups particularly suit vata as they are warming, creamy and easy to digest. If the soup is vegetarian, you can also stir in a little cream or even Parmesan at the end. You can make them more substantial by serving with some fresh bread (try spelt, oat bread or other wholegrain) and a pat of butter or even some cooked rice stirred in at the end.

Soups are also good for kapha as they are warming, easy to digest, and filling but not heavy. Avoid bread with the soup but try some home-made baked tortillas, rice or corn cakes or rye bread, or stir in some cooked brown rice or pearl barley to make it more substantial.

Soups that are not steaming hot are also fine for pitta. Serve with bread, cooked rice or barley.
