Healing fresh green breakfast soup with coconut and spices

Green soup.jpg

Happy tummy, skin, eyes and body this morning with a power packed bowl of goodness! Ayurvedic green breakfast porridge of fresh greens, coconut milk, red rice and turmeric.

The bitter greens balance out any internal heat and inflammation (not to mention chlorophyll in general being detoxifying, improving digestive health and oxidation), the coconut milk is nourishing and strengthening to the body, and the wonder spice turmeric is anti inflammatory, antioxidant, lowers risk of heart disease and improves brain function.

Traditionally enjoyed in Sri Lanka as ‘kola kande’. I’ve had lots of requests to share this recipe.. so here it is, below!


  • 2-3 cups of spinach or kale

  • 1 tsp ghee

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 1 cup water

  • Rock salt to taste

  • 1 tsp peppercorns

  • 1 tsp turmeric powder

  • 1/4 cup coconut milk

  • 1/2 cup pr-boiled red or brown rice


  • Blend greens to make a puree

  • Heat saucepan add half tsp ghee, and when heated add garlic, turmeric, peppercorns and spinach puree along with a little water to emulsify 

  • Add rock salt to taste

  • Stir through until it starts to bubble 

  • Add more water to make it 'soupy' to your taste and coconut milk and bring to the boil

  • When it is at boiling point add pre boiled brown or red rice for texture and taste

  • Remove from heat, cool it down and enjoy! :)

  • If you prefer it sweeter don't add turmeric - just follow rest of recipe eat with a cube of jaggery or coconut sugar.
