It’s that time of year, when we eat tons of soup at our house! There is absolutely nothing like soup! This soup below my look daunting to a young child, but I assure you if you use the basic soup recipe below and have the kids choose what goes in it, they will be more likely not only to try it but to eat it! By nature its eccentric, in the fact that no two are ever alike!
Make this soup as part of your 3-Day Cleanse!
This is the soup I used to make most often out at the ranch I occasionally cater retreats at. It is derived from the basic soup recipe (see below). Create something new every time!
Walking Lightly Soup:
- 1 whole apple
- 1 whole avocado
- 1 bunch greens (mustard, arugula, collards, broccoli, spinach, baby lettuces, or other favorite greens)
- 1 bunch herbs, (basil, parsley, cilantro, or other favorite herb)
- 1 whole zucchini
- 3 tablespoons miso
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 inch ginger
- dash cayenne pepper
- 2 to 3 cups blessed water or more if needed
Place all ingredients in a blender, blend and serve!
Basic Soup Recipe:
- 2 cups non-sweet fruit
Choose between cucumber, tomato, zucchini, pepper, or tomatillo. You may choose to use one or more of these.
- 1 to 2 cups liquid
Use one cup first. Then if needed, add more liquid at the end. Choose between blessed water, coconut water, or vegetable juice.
- 1 to 2 cups greens
Vegetables or herbs. Choose between kale, parsley, spinach, arugula (also a spice), celery, and your favorite herbs and veggies!
- 1/2 to 1 whole avocado, meat of one young coconut, or 2-4 Tablespoons of tahini.
- 4 Tablespoons olive oil, or other cold pressed oil like flax or hemp.
- 2 Tablespoons Miso
- 1/2 to 1 whole apple
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, or 2 tablespoons nama shoyu (or Bragg’s for gluten sensitive)
- 1 inch ginger (optional)
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1 pinch cayenne pepper
Blend all ingredients. You may choose to create a chunky soup by dicing some of the vegetables, or adding some. Warm it up till it feels warm to the touch! But not over 120 degrees so that you may preserve the enzymes and keep the soup ALIVE!
Some other great additions are kelp noodles or zucchini noodles, marinated or grated vegetables, chopped avocado, chopped onions, chopped tomatoes, olives, or sprouts.
Be creative, have fun and enjoy!
“Good Soup is one of the prime ingredients of good living. For soup can do more to lift the spirits and stimulate the appetite then any other one dish.”
