Spring Minestrone Soup

Minestrone soup is one of those classic, year round soups as you incorporate whatever seasonal vegetables are on hand. I love this spring version which includes fresh herbs, green beans, leeks, spinach and, of course, freshly grated parmesan. It’s quick and easy to make; perfect for a mid week dinner.

While there is much Chakra energy going on with this humble soup, there is a powerhouse of Solar Plexus, Root, and Heart Chakra energy which means you’ll feel secure, grounded, confident, empowered and loved with every sip.

Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup

I really like this version of split pea soup because it’s brothy, rather than thick like a stew. Artisan rolls or slices of bread with a pat of creamy butter are a must for dipping in the filling soup. I usually serve a simple side salad of romaine mixed with escarole (or other bitter lettuce) and shredded carrots in a mustard vinaigrette.

Slow Cooker Lentils

Although I usually think of lentils for fall or winter, this slow cooker version is also warm weather friendly, especially topped with cooling yogurt. I developed this when one morning I looked in my pantry for something to put in my slow cooker and found a bag of brown lentils. Bingo!
