How To Make Beetroot And Carrot Soup

Instructions:

      1. Use a heavy bottom pan to gently fry the chopped onion in olive oil until it is soft and translucent.
      2. Add stock, chopped beetroot, and carrots and bring to a boil.
      3. Simmer until the beetroot is tender.

Comments: The Vata and Pitta dosha are responsible for problems like insomnia. Root vegetables like beetroot and carrot help increase Kapha which helps one fall asleep. However, people who have a high blood sugar should take it in small quantities. Carrots and beetroot may also fight the oxidative damage that VP dosha dominant people are prone to.
