Because everyone requested so nicely…..
Here are some raw recipes! My favorite is the Popeye Soup! I had it tonight for dinner. Enjoy and Be Healthy!
1 cup water or vegetable broth
2 cucumbers, unwaxed
1 cup of fresh raw spinach
2 green onions
2 cloves garlic
1/3 red bell pepper
Himalayan Crystal Salt or Sea Salt
Middle Eastern Spices (I like to add 1/2- 1tsp of Garam Masala,
1/2-1tspTurmeric, and 1tspCurry)
Fresh lime juice, to taste
In a blender, add avocado and half the water or broth and puree, then add the rest of
the veggies one at a time and blend to your desired thickness. Once all the veggies are blended,
add the spices in to taste. After all the spices are added, add the lime juice to taste. You can serve this soup cold or slightly warmed (to keep it raw and alkalizing don't heat it past 118F).
Yummy and great if you're doing a liquid cleanse.
1-2 cups broccoli, chopped
1-2 cups cauliflower, chopped
1 cup cucumber juice or veggie broth
1/2 cup soaked almonds (raw)
1 clove garlic (minced)
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. curry powder
1 Tbsp. lemon or lime juice
1 Tbsp. Braggs liquid aminos
1/2 tsp. sea salt
In a food processor or blender, combine the almonds with the cucumber juice or brother and the garlic. Blend well. With machine still running, ad the broccoli and cauliflower and blend until smooth.
Finally, blend in a seasonings and lemon or lime juice, Bragg Amino, and salt. Add more brother or water to desired consistency.
Variation: Use avocado instead of the almonds and use this recipe for a salad dressing;)
Chunky Vegetable Soup
2 1/2 cups fresh carrot juice
6-8 celery stalks 2 carrots
1 summer Squash
Small bunch of arugula
Spice options: parsley, basil, or coriander
For broth, blend carrot juice, avocado, and 3-4 celery stalks. Grate squash, carrots, and remaining celery, adding finely chopped arugula and other fresh green spices last. Serve in bowl or cup, decorate with fresh herbs. Yum:)
