Super Green Detox Soup


Despite the long list of ingredients, this soup is incredibly quick and easy to make, and so good for you! Think of it as an alkalizing vitamin pill! Using really fresh produce in here makes a huge difference and being raw, you will retain all the vital nutrients in all the fresh vegetables and herbs used. This is a wonderful soup to enjoy on a hot summers day, or a great way to have a healthy light lunch.

Ingredients:

1 cup roughly chopped kale
1 cup mixed green leafy herbs (basil/coriander/mint)
2 celery stalks roughly chopped
1 large ripe avocado
1 zucchini roughly chopped
½ cucumber roughly chopped
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon tamari
½ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
¼ inch piece of fresh ginger
1 tablespoon tahini
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon nutritional yeast
2 cups cold filtered water

Optional:

1 teaspoon of cashew cheese to top each bowl.

Simply place all ingredients in your blender and blend until super smooth. If you want the soup a little thinner (it’s quite thick) simply add some more water until you reach your desired consistency.
Garnish with cashew cheese, sprouts, chilli and herbs.

Makes 2 large or 4 smaller serves.
