Raw Recipe: Winter Comfort Vegetable Soup

~ Raw Winter Comfort Vegetable Soup ~
Serves 2-3

The Ingredients:

  • 1 stick celery (optional: leave the leaves on for extra celery flavour + greens)

  • 1 medium carrot

  • 1 avocado

  • 1/2 large courgette

  • 1/2 medium tomato

  • 1/2 capsicum

  • leek (approx 3 cm-long segment)

  • 1/3 cup parsley

  • Juice of half lemon

  • 2 tbs olive oil

  • 1/2 tsp Cajun spice

  • 1 tsp french herbs

  • 1/2 tsp good salt

  • 2 cups water

The Equipment:

  • Blender

The Process:

(1) Place all the ingredients into the Blender apart from the water.

(2) The idea is to have the soup warm but at a temperature that does not destroy the vital Enzymes and vitamins (so 43 Degrees or lower). Add 1 1/4 cup tepid (room temperature) water. Boil some water and add 3/4 cup of boiling water. However, I have found that because a few vegetables come from the fridge they absorb the heat of the water very quickly and the overall temperature falls below 40 instantly, so unless your veggies are made into a soup in the middle of a summer and come from the warmed up counter, safely mix 1 cup boiling and 1 cup cold water together, then add to the blending jug. {Add a bit more water, if the soup is too thick – as vegetables’ water content varies.}

(3) Blend until smooth. Pour into bowls and Enjoy! :)
