Kapha Cauliflower

We were lucky enough to have budding Insta-chef and supper club host - @kirthanaa - cook us up a refreshing yet low key and chilled out recipe!

Kirthanaa was inspired by the key ingredients found within our Purifying range, such as mint and citrus, and tailored her recipe to satisfy summer appetites that are in need of a kick start to their digestion.

This Kapha Cauliflower is perfect for Pitta season (AKA summer) food for the Kapha dosha. It speeds up a slow Kapha metabolism as it is harder to digest requiring more energy to do so, whilst fresh mint uplifts the senses and tastebuds and a citrusy yogurt dressing gives lightness (meaning it will definitely all be gone.. very quickly.)
