Raw Spinach Soup

Raw Spinach Soup
From The Healthiest Meals on Earth

Prep time: 5-10 minutes

Serves 4


4oz/120g baby spinach, washed well, drained and dried
1 cup water
2-3 cloves roasted garlic or 1 clove raw garlic
1-2 tsp lemon juice
Pinch of salt
1 ripe avocado, cut in half and pitted
2 tbsp toasted hazelnuts or pine nuts

1. (The book suggests using a blender, but mine had trouble chopping the spinach so I used my food processor.) Puree spinach, water, garlic, lemon juice and salt. I would start with less water and only add more at the end if it’s too thick.

2. Spoon the avocado out of its shell and into the blender/food processor and process until smooth. Taste for seasoning. (I didn’t like the texture of the spinach in the food processor so at this point I transferred the soup to the blender for a final buzz.)

Divide into 4 equal portions and garnish with toasted nuts.

Just BTW... if you use roasted garlic this isn't a raw recipe.

I just made this recipe for dinner (with raw garlic instead) and no nuts, it was delicious! Today is my first day RAW so Im glad I found this recipe and in the vitamix it took 30 seconds! Thank!
