Soup PhotoSpring is officially here, and it’s time to adjust your meals accordingly, Phyllis Segura writes for the Buddhist magazine Tricycle. Taking the changing seasons into consideration while cooking can be a meditative practice—one that can instill a sense of wellbeing and connection to the body and the earth. For this spring, Segura gives a recipe for a green pea potage, specifically designed for the time of year. She also gives a number of meditative steps that people can take as they cook the meal. I haven’t tried it yet, but it certainly sounds good.
