This weekend I came home from a long and beautiful trip to the ashram in India: almost three weeks of intense meditation, yoga and mantra-chanting. After such a deep Maha Samadhi and a long journey, it is always nice to find lovely surprises at home.
My great neighbor who kept all my plants super-green and more alive than ever, had put some lovely fresh flowers on my table and she kept 2 huge fresh tomatoes of my kitchen garden into the fridge: isn’t that lovely? Now I did not have to go to the shop, because I had enough fresh, natural and prana-rich food in my house from which I made a delicious and simple tomato soup.
The art of Sattvic food is to keep it simple with little herbs to feel natural tastes, and not to overcook anything. So for this tomato soup I boiled a little layer of organic veggie broth and added just for 2 minutes the tomato-pieces, with some Himalaya-salt, pepper and parsley. Then for 1 minute I blended the soup with a handmixer into the pan. Tomato has a natural binder in it, so it didn’t need anything else to become a lovely soup which was done in less than 5 minutes and tasted absolutely delicious!
A perfect dinner after a long trip and for keeping the light feeling after such a strong samadhi, that way prana increases to higher levels.
