Super Vegetable Soup (Quick Version)

Super Vegetable Soup (Quick Version)

In Chapter 4 (Awakening the Senses) of The Chaos Antidote: A Fable About Mindfulness, the women prepare Super Vegetable Soup in silence. They chop, smell and taste as they prepare this soup, filled with fresh vegetables and a tasty broth. Veda reminds them that just as the broth softens the vegetables, our mindful breath softens our mind so it is supple to experience life. I invite you to prepare the Super Vegetable Soup in silence, using all your senses to experience the food and appreciate the cooking process. NOTE: This is a quick version of the original recipe.
