It has a rather odd variety of ingredients: thyme, coconut milk,
carrots, and lime juice. Yet they fit together somehow very well!
After mastering this recipe on the stovetop, I thought it would fit just as
well as the Instant Pot soup recipe… and I wasn’t wrong!
From Ayurvedic Point of View:
Revered in ancient Rome as an aphrodisiac and proverbial for their
eyesight effects, carrots are sweet and bitter with warm energy. They’re
soothing for Vata and Kapha. Their high antioxidant content is the reason
why carrots are used for blood cleansing, liver cleansing, and cancer
Ayurveda considers onion and garlic more than food. As a result, onions
and garlic are known as blood purifiers in Ayurveda. While garlic has
curing properties, onions have cooling properties and are a perfect summer
snack. Onions are sweet in flavor and help promote better digestion.
