For all you RAW and Gluten Free loving foodies out there, and for anyone who wants a clean raw soup for a change and a tasty shot of energy…and some immune system boosting, and great taste. , move over gazpacho, here comes an A.R.S*. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
Begin with avocado, which is high in EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids) and Cucumber, which is known for its cleansing, diuretic properties. Spinach has minerals & vitamins, garlic, lemon and lime are alkalizing and great for boosting your immune system It’s also refreshing and tastes great!
It’s a “big favorite while on a cleanse or detoxification program”. (Check my page on the 5 step program.)
Alkalizing Raw Soup* (Serves 2)
2 green onions (scallions)
1/2 red or green pepper
1 cucumber (if Organic scrub and use with peel)
2 handfuls of spinach
1/2 clove fresh garlic (or more to taste)
Bragg’s Liquid Aminos to taste (like soy sauce)
1/2 Cup Light vegetable boullion (yeast free)
Juice of 1 lemon or lime Optional: Coriander, parsley, cumin. An apple, cored and cut up.
Blend the avocado and boullion to form a light paste. Then add all the other ingredients and blend all together. Serve in bowls or mugs with crackers crispy veggies and hummus or almond butter.
Consider this for a picnic drink, in a thermos – refreshing change of afternoon pick-me-up or just a light meal.
NOTE: Herbs such as Parsley have great cleansing properties and add flavor. Coriander or Cilantro is a good heavy metal cleanser, and cumin adds great taste. Use according to your individual preferences.
