Pitta Pacifying Recipes


Pitta Dosha needs to cool down this time of year, generally. What better way than with the choices we make 3 times a day already – our meals! Here’s a recipe to try when you’re HANGRY.

Cooling Pitta Recipe:

Cook-Veg-Soup-RSSummer Vegetable Soup with Mint, Coriander and Parsley, served with Pitta Crisps


For the Pitta Crisps

  • 3 white pitta breads
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the Soup

  • 1 litre good vegetable stock (homemade is best)
  • 150 g podded broad beans (approx. 300 g unpodded)
  • 150 g shelled peas (approx. 300 g unshelled)
  • 150 g green beans, sliced into 2 cm lengths
  • 1 bunch each of mint, coriander and flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • juice of ½ a lemon
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


Prepare the pitta crisps first by slicing the pitta breads into diagonal strips of about 2 cm wide. Open up each slice to make two pieces and arrange on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper and bake in the oven (220°C/425°F/gas mark 6) for 15 minutes until crisp all over.

While the pitta crisps are in the oven, start making the soup. Begin by heating the stock and season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Add vegetables and simmer gently for 3-4 minutes until tender then remove from the heat.

Gently stir in the herbs, lemon juice and spring onion and serve piping hot with a few pitta crisps on top.
