Warm Uncooked Avocado Soup

Hi everyone!
This weeks recipe is a really nourishing soup and we’re not cooking any of the ingredients but the soup is going to be served warm!
I’m keeping everything fresh and raw, all the enzymes, vitamins and minerals will be just as nature intended and I’m mixing the vegetables with hot water, making the soup warm and toasty!
.
This soup serves one person and I’m using half an avocado, fennel and celery (so good for detoxing bodies). I’m adding chilies to speed up the metabolism, ginger – really good anti inflammatory and loads of greens like rocket and parsley, 1/2 a freshly squeezed lime adds zing and vitamin C.

You need a blender for this soup.  I’m using the Nutribullet, the small container works well for this soup for one.

Add some food allergies into the mix and it’s easy to throw in the towel.
In this video I show you what I did to get my kids used to and later liking this healthy vegan vegetable soup.

Raw Tomato and Pine Nut Soup

A good way to introduce some warmth to your raw food diet in the winter months is to blend your vegetables with hot water, as in this creamy tomato soup.
Since the vegetables have not been cooked all the enzymes vitamins and minerals are still intact.
This soup is filling thanks to the nutritious pine nuts and at the same time it reminds me of a sunny holiday in Italy
Hope you like it!

Raw Orange, Beetroot and Ginger Soup

 

20131204192223(1)

This is a great little fresh nutritious-rich soup for one.
You actually only need the veg, the turmeric and cumin I add because they come with amazing health benefits and because it fits.
A lot of raw foods have oil or nuts in them making them quite calori-dense.
Not this one, so perfect if you need to prepare for the party season 🙂

Cauliflower Soup

cauliflower soup
There was a big cauliflower head in the veg box this week and even though the kids enjoy plain steamed or boiled cauliflower I decided to do something different.
I found this recipe HERE.
It came with glowing reviews and it was really nice even though it looked a bit bland.
I would probably not make it as watery as in the recipe.
But what I really liked was that it doesn’t contain any stock or milk. (can’t stand soups with milk!)

Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable and is full of goodness like Vitamin C, Vitamin K and Folate.

Here’s the recipe:
3 tablespoons of raw coconut oil
I cauliflower
1 onion
Salt & pepper
Olive oil

* Heat the coconut oil in a pan, sweat the onions for 15min on a low temperature (they should not go brown)

* Break cauliflower into florets and add to pan with 1/2 cup of water. Put a lid on  and stew for 15 min until tender.

* Than add another 3 1/2 cup of water (the recipe says 4 1/2 cup but I think it’s to much).

* Pure the soup, I used a hand blender. Let it stand for 20 min this will make it thicker.

* You can now thin the soup with 1/2 cup of water if you need to. Reheat. Serve with a drizzle of virgin oil and pepper.

Watercress Soup

watercress soup

Watercress really is a superfood.
It’s highly nutritious, It strengthens the immune system, improves mental health and helps fight depression.
It also have a unique type of phytochemical called nasturin which may inhibit the growth of cancer cells. And if that was not enough it also helps in the production of breast milk.
Brimming with the B vitamins C, E ,carotene as well as calcium, fibre, iron and copper it’s also super delicious.

I make the above soup at least once a week, is amazingly easy and quick and so incredible full of goodness.
And if you’re looking to lose a bit of midriff lard, this is the perfect soup for lunch or dinner, maybe with a boiled egg. It will keep you feeling full for a long, long time.

I make mine with ginger, garlic and fresh turmeric.  3 ingredients that in themselves are superfoods!

You Need: 1 bunch of watercress,1 cup of hot water, coconut oil, 1 red onion, 2 garlic cloves, 1/2 cm of ginger, 1/2 cm of fresh turmeric, 1/2 tablespoon stock powder, black pepper.

Directions:
1. Heat up coconut oil In a pan, add a chopped red union.
2. When the union is soft you add the garlic, turmeric, ginger, after 1/2min also add the watercress
3. Pour over 1 cup of hot water, mix with stock powder.
4. Blend it, I use a handblender. I never let the soup boil so I don’t destroy any of the goodness Serve.
