Pitta/Vata pacifying cream of rice soup
Cilantro, Ginger and Garlic pacifies Kapha, Pitta and Vata. Breaks up winter congestion and cold. Garlic is grounding for late fall Vata and an aphrodisiac. Cilantro is one of the few cooling pungent spices that stimulate digestion and reduce inflammation, thus reducing Pitta. Cilantro has a sweet "vipaka" and thus is nourishing. Use fresh ginger.
