Steamed Cauliflower and Carrot Zen Soup~



Carrots- 1/2 cup thinly quartered

Tomato- 1/4 cup diced

Water- 2 cups

Soya Sauce- 5 tsp

Lemon- 1/2 freshly squeezed

Chili Powder- Just a dash

Black Pepper- Few pinches according to taste

Salt- To taste


 Boil water in a deep pan. As the water is starting to boil, add soya sauce, black pepper and let it boil for 10 minutes. Add the cut vegetables and chill powder at this time. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Taste the salt, and use it sparingly as soya sauce has salt. Close the stove and add the lemon juice into the soup. Let it rest for 5 minutes.

 You can add any choice of your favorite vegetables and create a different version by adding more vibrant colors into it. This soup is a healthy version without a drop of oil being used in the cooking. Any grain or noddles can be used to make it more fuller.

 This is a very light soup as generally used by the zen monks daily in the monasteries. The lightness of this food source will help in getting higher concentration and yet remain full. Enjoy this simple soup on a cold winter evening along with a light toast or cracker.

Simplicity is the pathway to divinity~
