Ancestral Fire Soup
by Jewels Aradia
This is one of my own creations. Great for Halloween or the harvest time of year. A little sweet, a little spicy. Gluten free and 100% Vegan!
I prefer to activate my herbs and ingredients before cooking with them. Each herb/ingredient has its own frequency and personality to its flavor, which adds to the overall meal experience. I honor it and bless it, inviting its healing properties to awaken…
You can accomplish this by simply praying over the herb or giving it Reiki. Sometimes I feel drawn to hold each ingredient in my hand and sing to the beauty of its spiritual essence before adding it to the brew.
Let your intuition guide you in the creation of this magical cooking experience. Not only will you taste the difference in you culinary creations, you will also feel the healing benefits within body, mind and soul.
Chop the following vegetables and place on a large baking sheet greased with olive oil (coconut oil will increase sweetness):
butternut squash (2-3 cups, cubed)
carrots (1 c)
yellow squash (1 c)
sweet potatoes (1 c)
Sprinkle vegetables with salt and a generous amount of ground cinnamon.
Roast organic harvest vegetables in the oven at 400 for 20 minutes on olive oil greased baking pan.
Once roasted, add to crock pot with 4 cups water, 2 cups organic vegetable broth. Set temperature to High.
Chop one large onion and several cloves of garlic (approx 5-6).
Sauté onion and garlic in a large skillet with olive oil until onions begin to caramelize just a wee bit, then add to crock pot.
Add seasonings to taste:
nutmeg (1/2 t)
Instead of sweet potatoes, add 1 c peeled and chopped apple (the fruit of wisdom and spiritual ‘food’ of the Ancestors) to the brew.
For a little extra zing, chop and sauté an orange bell pepper with the onions & garlic…
Always stir in a clockwise direction to awaken the energies of the healing herbs, spices and vegetables you are cooking with. Be sure to add your own healing and loving intentions as you stir.
Cover and let your ‘witches brew’ do it’s thing while you go meditate and do yoga or go hiking for a few hours…come back and voila! A glorious feast you and the Sacred Ancestors will enjoy.
I prefer my soups to be chunky and more like a stew, but you can also blend the ingredients into a fine puree before serving and garnish with a sprig of rosemary. Blessed Be!
