October 2013 Recipe of the Month

Shorter days, falling leaves, and crisper air. Pumpkins on the stoop, and the roar of a crowd at a football game. No dish goes better with the feeling of autumn than a piping hot bowl of soup. The recipe below, from the October chapter of  Mindful Living by Miraval, is hearty, satisfying, and a Miraval staple. The peppers, cumin, and cayenne team up to provide a kick of flavor; and the dish is easy to make and full of plant protein and fiber. Enjoy!
