Recipes: Garden Green Soup + A Simple Soup Formula

It’s officially spring, which on Kauai actually feels more like summer. It’s more like 2-ish seasons here on the island – hot and rainy, or cool and rainy!

Though not a traditional Ayurvedic dish or combo, it’s pure comfort food and soul nourishment for me this time of year!
