Here Kasia shares a recipe for one of her favorite winter meals—beet soup a la Poland! Beets are a wonderful Ayurvedic winter food, due to their ability to cleanse the liver and rejuvenate the blood.

  • 1 organic potato
  • 1 organic carrot
  • 1 organic parsley root
  • 1 small celery root

  • 3 tbsp of olive oil
  • half of a lemon, juiced
  • fresh dill
  • salt and pepper

  2. Add chopped beet leaves and turn the heat off. Keep covered for 3-5 minutes.
  3. Spoon into a bowl, and garnish with fresh dill! Enjoy with a spoonful of vegan yogurt and wheat-free warm toast.
